Hot gas pervades the Universe: about half of the baryonic content in the Universe is expected to be at T > 10 K, and there are as many baryons at T > 10 trapped in galaxy clusters as there are locked into stars. There is an intimate relation between this hot gas, which delineates the large-scale structure of the Universe, and the most energetic phenomena occurring in the immediate vicinity of super-massive black holes, through a poorly known process called Cosmic Feedback. Studying the hot and… CONTINUE READING
