Description GT- We will obtain a very high signal-to-noise, high resolution spectrum of the bright Low Mass X-ray Binary 4U0614+09. CCD spectroscopy has indicated that surprisingly large EW discrete emission is present in the spectrum below 1 keV. With the RGS spectrum, we will resolve this emission, infer its origin, and the physical conditions in the source. The source is bright enough that one RGS will be run in high time resolution mode, to study a possible dependence of the discrete emission on the continuum flux.

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.
