|Title||The Subaru Deep Field SSC_33|
|Author||Dr Michael Watson|
|Description||GT-We propose to make a survey of virgul1 square degree region down to the confusion limiting flux of the XMM EPIC cameras in an area which will also be the subject of an extensive optical photometric and spectroscopic survey using the 8m Subaru telescope, making possible the systematic identification and study of the > 2000 X-ray sources that are expected to be detected. This study will be of great importance for our knowledge of faint X-ray source populations, in particular at energies above 2 keV.|

|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.
