Nicastro et al. detect OVII and NVII lines from the WHIM on the line-of-sight to Mkn 421 using Chandra TOO observations when the source was in outburst. The measured baryon density is consistent with model predictions.

Berti et al. study what LISA will be able to determine from MBH inspirals.

Melbourne et al. present first results using laser guide star adaptive optics on Keck to do NIR imaging of GOODS sources. They have a NIR FWHM of ~0.1".

Kotov & Vikhlinin present XMM spatially-resolved temperature and density profiles of clusters in the range z=0.4-0.7.

Keywords: WHIM, GW, AGN, clusters
