Abstract

Centaurus A (NGC 5128) is a giant early-type galaxy containing the nearest radio-bright AGN. The high-angular resolution Chandra images of Cen A reveal multi-scale X-ray structures with unprecedented detail and clarity. We present results from our study of X-ray structures surrounding the Cen A nuclear region, including the discovery of giant arc-like structures, extending to about 8 kpc in the direction perpendicular to the jet. We compare the X-ray structures with observations in other wavelengths and discuss their implication for a global understanding of the morphology of Cen A.
