Bibliographic Code:


Two rocket observations of very soft X-ray diffuse intensity show three emission regions of large angular extent. A large portion of the sky as seen with wide angular resolution is mapped. These three regions coincide with broad regions of small column densities of neutral hydrogen. It is suggested that a component of the interstellar medium is very hot and is responsible for the soft X-ray emission and the O VI.
