The Chandra component of GOALS involves a Cycle 8 program (Sanders et al., Program #08700551) consisting of X-ray imaging with the ACIS. Observing time was awarded to obtain 15,000 sec integrations of 26 LIRGs and ULIRGs with LIR > 1011.67 L☉, selected from the IRAS Revised Bright Galaxy Sample (RBGS: i.e., 60 μm flux density > 5.24 Jy).
The high level goals of the observations are to:
