X-Ray Mass of Coma Cluster

  1. Oct 5, 2015 #1
    Does anyone have a reliable reference for the X-Ray mass of the Coma Cluster? I've got a value of 3e13 from Gursky's 1971 report, but I got to believe there's something more recent. Googling hasn't turned up anything more reliable than some notes on lecture slides.

    You seem fixated on the bullet cluster as if it is some kind of demon haunting your version of cosmology. Are you advocating an alternative to LCDM?

    No. I'm advocating critical thinking skills.
