The radio nebula W50 harbours the relativistic binary system SS433, which is a source of the powerful wind and jets. The origin of W50 is wrapped in the interplay of the wind, supernova remnant and jets. The evolution of the jets on the scales of the nebula is a Rosetta stone for its origin. To disentangle the roles of these components, we study physical conditions of the jets propagation inside W50, and determine deceleration of the jets. The morphology and parameters of the interior of W50…

Continuous Jets and Backflow Models for the Formation of W50/SS 433 in Magnetohydrodynamics Simulations
The formation mechanism of the W50/SS 433 complex has long been a mystery. We propose a new scenario in which the SS 433 jets themselves form the W50/SS 433 system. We carry out magnetohydrodynamics
Very-high-energy particle acceleration powered by the jets of the microquasar SS 433
Teraelectronvolt γ-ray observations of the SS 433/W50 system that spatially resolve the lobes conclude that the emission—from radio to teraelectronsvolt energies—is consistent with a single population of electrons with energies extending to at least hundreds of teraelectedronvolts in a magnetic field of about 16 microgauss.
Multiwavelength Emission from Galactic Jets: The Case of the Microquasar SS433
SS433 is a Galactic microquasar with powerful jets, where very-high-energy particles are produced. We study particle acceleration in the jets of SS433 in the light of the recent multi-wavelength data
On the Formation of SS433
SS433 is an extraordinary X-ray binary which is ejecting bipolar jets with $26\%$ of the speed of light. Associated with the supernova-like shell W50, SS433 is also probably one of the youngest X-ray
Gamma-ray heartbeat powered by the microquasar SS 433
Microquasars, the local siblings of extragalactic quasars, are binary systems comprising a compact object and a companion star. By accreting matter from their companions, microquasars launch powerful
Energy estimation of high-energy particles associated with the SS 433/W 50 system through radio observation at 1.4 GHz
The radio nebula W 50 is a unique object interacting with the jets of the microquasar SS 433. The SS 433/W 50 system is a good target for investigating the energy of cosmic-ray particles
A Small-scale Investigation of Molecular Emission toward the Tip of the Western Lobe of W50/SS 433
We perform a molecular (CO and CN) line observation using IRAM 30m telescope toward two small regions near the western edge of supernova remnant (SNR) W50/SS433. CO observation reveals spatial
The Large-scale Interstellar Medium of SS 433/W50 Revisited
With new high-resolution CO and H I data, we revisited the large-scale interstellar medium (ISM) environment toward the SS. 433/W50 system. We find that two interesting molecular cloud (MC)
Deciphering the Origin of the GeV–TeV Gamma-Ray Emission from SS 433
We investigate hadronic and leptonic scenarios for the GeV--TeV gamma-ray emission from jets of the microquasar SS 433. The emission region of the TeV photons coincides with the X-ray knots, where
Constraints on the Collimated X-ray Emission of SS 433 from the Reflection on Molecular Clouds
We calculate X-ray signal that should arise due to reflection of the putative collimated X-ray emission of the Galactic supercritical accretor SS 433 on molecular clouds in its vicinity. The


Simulation of kinematics of SS 433 radio jets that interact with the ambient medium
Context. The mildly relativistic jets of SS 433 are believed to inflate the surrounding supernova remnant W 50, possibly depositing more than 99% of their kinetic energy in the remnant expansion.

We present investigations of the interaction between the relativistic, precessing jets of the microquasar SS433 and the surrounding, expanding supernova remnant (SNR) shell, W50, and the consequent
XMM-Newton observations of the eastern jet of SS 433
Context. The radio supernova remnant W50 hosts at its center the peculiar galactic X-ray binary SS 433. It shows a central spherical structure with two “ears” which are supposed to be formed by the
