CHANDRA DETECTION OF X-RAY ABSORPTION FROM LOCAL WARM/HOT GAS

By T. Fang, C. Canizares, K. Sembach, H. Marshall, J. Lee and D. Davis

Abstract

Recently, with the Chandra X-ray Telescope we have detected several local X-ray absorption lines along lines-of-sight towards distant quasars. These absorption lines are produced by warm/hot gas located in local intergalactic space and/or in our Galaxy. I will present our observations and discuss the origin of the X-ray absorption and its implications in probing the warm/hot component of local baryons. 1
