The Orion Trapezium is one of the youngest and closest star-forming regions within our Galaxy. With a dynamic age of ~3 × 105 yr, it harbors a number of very young hot stars, which likely are on the zero-age main sequence (ZAMS). We analyzed high-resolution X-ray spectra in the wavelength range of 1.5-25 Å of three of its X-ray-brightest members (Θ1 Ori A, C, and E) obtained with the High Energy Transmission Grating Spectrometer (HETGS) on board the Chandra X-Ray Observatory. We measured X-ray…
