Abell 2256 - Observing a Mpc(3) nonthermal laboratory

Abstract:

The galaxy cluster Abell 2256 is in the violent stage of a giant cluster merger event. Evidence of this merger is seen in the X-ray substructure of ROSAT images (Briel et al. 1991). Radio images reveal the complex nature of this cluster: a synchrotron halo, several head-tail radio galaxies, and two extended irregular and sharp-edged regions of diffuse radio emission - so called radio relics (Fig. 1). The relics are believed to be powered by the energy input of the merger shock into an old (re...
