[13.16] Chandra Observations of NGC 4410: Nuclear Activity and ULXs in an Interacting Galaxy System

The nearby (100 Mpc) radio galaxy NGC 4410A is part of an interacting system that contains at least four interacting nuclei. Two are in close interaction (10 kpc), with the two others being at greater distance, albeit with clear optical bridges connecting them. We recently obtained a Chandra imaging observation of this system. Here we describe the results, focusing on observations of the active nucleus in NGC 4410A, as well as observations of the possible population of ULX sources. One of these sources is clearly associated with a radio point source, whereas another source (in fact, the brightest ULX in the system), may also be associated with radio emission.
