Extended Data Fig. 4: Chandra 1–2 keV map of the Galactic Centre.

Extended Data Fig. 4

The same structures seen in the XMM-Newton 1.5–2.6-keV image (Extended Data Fig. 2, footprint indicated by red dashed box) are observed also in the shallower Chandra image. Although the 1–2-keV band map is more affected by neutral absorption towards the plane compared with the 1.5–2.6-keV band (Extended Data Fig. 2), we display it here in order to emphasize the residual high-latitude emission (for example, inside the Fermi bubbles). GX 3+1 is an accreting X-ray binary.
