Caption: Figure 1.

Panel (a): Chandra X-ray image of Kes 75 with the soft thermal emission shown in violet and hard nonthermal emission from the PWN shown in blue (NASA/CXC/GSFC/Gavriil et al. 2008). The region in the white rectangle is zoomed-in in panel (b). Panel (b): zoomed-in view of the PWN in Kes 75 with the nonthermal Chandra X-ray emission shown in blue and the Herschel 70 μm emission shown in red. The IR emission seems to be distributed in two lobes along the equatorial region of the PWN, perpendicular to the pulsar’s jets (also see Figure 2).
