  • We make a further study of the very deep Chandra observation of the X-ray brightest galaxy cluster, A 426 in Perseus. We examine the radial distribution of energy flux inferred by the quasi-concentric ripples in surface brightness, assuming they are due to sound waves, and show that it is a significant fraction of the energy lost by radiative cooling within the inner 75‐ 100 kpc, where the cooling time is 4‐5 Gyr, respectively. The wave flux decreases outward with radius, consistent with energy… CONTINUE READING
