Description GT- SS433 is a unique galactic binary system with highly collimated relativistic jets accelerating off from the compact source.Despite years of observations with all major missions fundamental questions regarding the nature of the compact source, the accretion mechanism, and the process of acceleration and collimation of the jets remain unanswered. We will obtain high resolution spectra in order to constrain the physical conditions in the jet and circumstellar material.

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.
