A Chandra X-ray image (blue) has been combined with Hubble's optical image (red and green) to compose this stunning and revealing picture of the spiral galaxy NGC 3079. The location of the water maser studied with the SMA is marked on the inset. Towering filaments consisting of warm (about ten thousand degrees Celsius) and hot (about ten million degrees C) gas blend to create the bright horseshoe-shaped feature near the center. The correlation of the warm and hot filaments suggests that they were both formed as a superwind of gas rushed out from the galaxy's center. Such a superwind originates either from activity generated by a central supermassive black hole, or by a burst of supernova activity.
