An X-ray image of the violent interstellar medium in 30 Doradus
A detailed analysis of the X-ray emission from the largest H II regioncomplex in the Local Group, 30 Dor, is presented. Applying a new maximumentropy deconvolution algorithm to the Einstein Observatory data,reveals striking correlations among the X-ray, radio, and opticalmorphologies of the region, with X-ray-emitting bubbles filling cavitiessurrounded by H-alpha shells and coextensive diffuse X-ray and radiocontinuum emission from throughout the region. The total X-rayluminosity in the 0.16-3.5 keV band from an area within 160 pc of thecentral cluster R136 is about 2 x 10 to the 37th ergs/sec.
