In science:

Over the next few years a large number of cooling flow clusters will be observed by Chandra, from which we can test our proposed moderate cooling flow scenario.
A Moderate Cluster Cooling Flow Model
Only ≪ 1010M⊙ presently resides in a cool phase (T ∼< 104K). (3) The very inner regions of cooling flows r ∼< 10 − 30 kpc, are very robust to destruction, and therefor are long lived.
A Moderate Cluster Cooling Flow Model
In addition, due to the jets which once were expanding through these regions, we predict that the cooling flow regions will show some strong inhomogeneities, even in regions were there are presently no radio jets. (7) The radio activity in cooling flow clusters was much larger in the past, at a redshift of z ∼ 0.5.
A Moderate Cluster Cooling Flow Model
The ratio of the gas final cooling time to the age of the original cooling flow as a function of radial distance from the cluster center, after a passage of a shock wave through the cooling flow region.
A Moderate Cluster Cooling Flow Model
The undisturbed cooling flow model is according to equation (3.1) with a cooling radius of rc = 100 kpc.
