Subject: X-Ray Glow Is Evidence Of Missing Matter

The spectral glow of an oxygen isotope from three clusters of galaxies might be proof that hot gases there account for a large fraction of the previously unseen matter in the universe.

Using the European Space Agency's XMM/Newton Observatory, a team led by Dr. Jelle Kaastra at the Space Research Organization of the Netherlands identified warm gas around the centers of three massive cosmological structures as oxygen VII, giving a relatively precise reading of the temperatures found in those regions.

Results of this research will be published in Astronomy & Astrophysics (The on-line version is at: http://xxx.lanl.gov/abs/astro-ph/0210684).
