We have made deep Chandra observations of three powerful FRII radio sources: two quasars (3C 263 and 3C 351) and one radio galaxy (3C 330). X-ray emission from hotspots and lobes, as well as from the active nucleus, is detected in each source. We model the hotspots' synchrotron spectra using VLA, BIMA and Hubble Space Telescope data. In 3C 263 and 3C 330… CONTINUE READING
