NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 1998MNRAS.298..569H Jets, plumes and hotspots in the wide-angle tail source 3C 130 M. J. Hardcastle Accepted 1998 March 19, Received 1998 March 2; in original form 1997 September 29 ABSTRACT I present 1.5-and 8.4-GHz observations with all configurations of the NRAO VLA of the wide-angle tail source 3C 130. The source has a pair of relatively symmetrical, well-collimated inner jets, one of which terminates in a compact hotspot. Archival ROSAT PSPC data confirm that the environment of 3C 130 is a luminous cluster with little sign of sub-structure in the X- ray-emitting plasma. I compare the source to other wide-angle tail objects and discuss the properties of the class as a whole. None of the currently popular models is entirely satisfactory in accounting for the disruption of the jets in 3C 130. Key words: galaxies: active - galaxies: individual: 3C 130 - galaxies: jets - radio continuum: galaxies.
