About this Image
An X-ray image of the radio lobes, core and hot-gas environment of the powerful radio galaxy 3C 223, with radio contours superimposed to show the relationship between radio and X-ray properties. The radio contours are from the 1.4-GHz VLA map of Leahy & Perley (1991). The lobe X-rays come from inverse-Compton scattering of the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation.
Investigator(s): Croston, Birkinshaw, Hardcastle, and Worrall
