I read NASA's press release about this, and thought it was a really good story. It is interesting to observe directly the consequences of galaxies gaseous halos and jets hitting each other. It gives us something to measure about how much of it there is, and how energetic it is.

BTW, at this time, the story itsef doesn't seem to be up on UT.
