Abstract

We show that if one assumes (following Cowsik and Pal and Shen in their explanation of the flux of galactic gamma rays) that the recently measured far-infrared radiation is galactic, then one must also accept the existence of the x-ray flux, with a magnitude in agreement with observations but with a large anisotropy, in sharp disagreement with the measured isotropy. © 1969 The American Physical Society.
