We examine Suzaku, XMM–Newton, and Chandra observations of the Abell 2029/2033 system to investigate the nature of a bridge of X-ray emission joining the two galaxy clusters. By modelling the contributions from the outskirts of the two clusters, and excluding the emission from the southern infalling group and the background group LOS9, we find a significant excess of X-ray emission between the two clusters at the level of 6.5–7.0σ, depending on the choice of model, that cannot be explained by…

Cluster outskirts and their connection to the cosmic web
We review the latest developments in our X-ray observational and theoretical understanding of the outskirts of galaxy clusters, and their connection to the cosmic web. The faint cluster outskirts are
