Title Galaxy evolution in low X-ray luminosity clusters - An HST-XMM study


DOI https://doi.org/10.5270/esa-4gdw8qc
Author Dr Alastair Edge
Description We propose to observe 4 low X-ray luminosity clusters that are part of a large HST and ground-based program to study galaxy evolution in low density cluster environments. The clusters are selected from the ROSAT serendipitous detections Vikhlinin et al. 1998. The proposed XMM observations will enable us to make a detailed comparison of the member galaxies properties and the intracluster gas they pass through.

Mission Description The European Space Agency's (ESA) X-ray Multi-Mirror Mission (XMM-Newton) was launched by an Ariane 504 on December 10th 1999. XMM-Newton is ESA's second cornerstone of the Horizon 2000 Science Programme. It carries 3 high throughput X-ray telescopes with an unprecedented effective area, and an optical monitor, the first flown on a X-ray observatory. The large collecting area and ability to make long uninterrupted exposures provide highly sensitive observations.
Since Earth's atmosphere blocks out all X-rays, only a telescope in space can detect and study celestial X-ray sources. The XMM-Newton mission is helping scientists to solve a number of cosmic mysteries, ranging from the enigmatic black holes to the origins of the Universe itself. Observing time on XMM-Newton is being made available to the scientific community, applying for observational periods on a competitive basis.
