Abstract: Chandra observations of lensing galaxy clusters have provided accurate dark matter profiles for some objects, clear evidence for departure from hydrostatic equilibrium in the intra-cluster plasma of others, and indications that the X-ray surface brightness distribution need not follow mass. I provide examples of these phenomena and discuss their implications for dark matter distributions in cluster cores, for models of cluster formation and for the reliability of X-ray determinations of cluster mass.
