High-Resolution X-ray Imaging of the Colliding Wind Shock

Abstract

We analyze new high-resolution Chandra Xray images of the Wolf-Rayet binary system WR147. This system contains a WN8 star with an early-type companion located 0.6” to its north, and is the only known earlytype binary with a separation on the sky large enough for the wind-wind collision between the stars to currently be resolved at X-ray energies. The 5 ksec… (More)
