We present results from two Chandra/ACIS-I observations and one XMM-Newton observation of X-ray emission from the interstellar medium (ISM) and the inner radio lobes of the nearby radio galaxy Centaurus A. The ISM has an average radial surface brightness profile that is well described by a � -model profile with index � ¼ 0:40 � 0:04 and a temperature of kBTISM � 0:29 keV beyond 2 kpc from the nucleus. We find that diffuse X-ray emission is coincident with the outer half of the southwest radio… 
X-ray emission from the extended emission-line region of the powerful radio galaxy 3C 171
We present Chandra X-ray observations of the powerful radio galaxy 3C 171, which reveal an extended region of X-ray emission spatially associated with the well-known 10-kpc scale optical
High-energy particle acceleration at the radio-lobe shock of Centaurus A
We present new results on the shock around the southwest radio lobe of Centaurus A using data from the Chandra Very Large Programme observations (740 ks total observing time). The X-ray spectrum of
X-ray emission from the nuclei, lobes and hot-gas environments of two FR II radio galaxies
We report on the detection of multiple components of X-ray emission from the two FR II radio galaxies, 3C 223 and 3C 284, based on new XMM-Newton observations. We attribute the detected X-ray
A Radio through X-Ray Study of the Hot Spots, Active Nucleus, and Environment of the Nearby FR II Radio Galaxy 3C 33
We present results from Chandra ACIS-S, Spitzer, XMM-Newton, HST, and VLA observations of the radio hot spots, extended environment, and nucleus of the nearby (z = 0.0597) FR II radio galaxy 3C 33.
The jet heated x-ray filament in the Centaurus A northern middle radio lobe
We present results from a 40 ks XMM-Newton observation of the X-ray filament coincident with the southeast edge of the Centaurus A Northern Middle Radio Lobe (NML). We find that the X-ray filament
The XMM-Newton view of the X-ray halo and jet of NGC 6251
We present an XMM-Newton observation of the radio jet and diffuse halo of the nearby radio galaxy NGC 6251. The EPIC spectrum of the galaxy's halo is best-fitted by a thermal model with temperature
The xmm-newton detection of diffuse inverse compton X-rays from lobes of the FR II radio galaxy 3C 98
The XMM-Newton observation of the nearby FR II radio galaxy 3C 98 is reported. In two exposures on the target, faint diffuse X-ray emission associated with the radio lobes was significantly detected
Chandra and XMM-Newton Observations of the Nucleus of Centaurus A
We present X-ray spectra of the nucleus of the nearby radio galaxy Centaurus A from observations with the XMM-Newton EPIC CCD cameras (two exposures separated by 12 months) and the Chandra HETGS. For
Testing for Shock-Heated X-ray Gas Around Compact Steep Spectrum Radio Galaxies
We present Chandra and XMM-Newton X-ray, VLA radio, and optical observations of three candidate Compact Steep Spectrum (CSS) radio galaxies. CSS sources are galactic scale and are presumably driving
XMM-Newton detection of X-ray emission from the compact steep-spectrum radio galaxy 3C 303.1
Using XMM-Newton we detect faint unresolved X-ray emission from the compact steep-spectrum radio galaxy 3C 303.1. We detect a thermal component at kT 0.8 keV, which seems likely to be produced in the

TLDR
First results from a Chandra X-Ray Observatory observation of the radio galaxy Centaurus A with the High-Resolution Camera are presented, finding the nucleus to be extended by a few tenths of an arcsecond and suggesting the presence of an X-ray counterjet.
