3C66B, a ‘typical’ z ~ 0.02 (D ~100 Mpc) jet
Arrows indicate compact X-ray features with weak (but now detected) radio counterparts and flat radio-X-ray spectra
Either we are wrong about inverse-Compton emission or we have synchrotron emission as well/instead in some sources.
X-ray detections X-ray upper limits
Not as good a correlation as it looks!
Crosses – LERG
Boxes – NLRG
Circles – BLRG
Stars – Quasars
Large circles show hotspots that jets enter
