Description We propose XMM EPIC observations of the GHz Peaked Spectrum (GPS) source 2352+495 and the Compact Steep Spectrum (CSS) source 3C303.1. The proposed observations will allow us to finally detect the GPS and CSS radio galaxies thus probing the AGN and host galaxy properties of this key class of radio source. We will (1) compare their AGN and host galaxy X-ray properties with those of other radio galaxies studied by XMM; (2) constrain the ionization of the emission lines; (3) and test the evolving source model of Heinz et al (1998). A detection of the X-ray emission from the shocked gas will prove that the radio source is expanding supersonically in the ambient medium consistent with the evolution scenario and will also probe fundamental physics of the radio source.

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.
