Title XMM-Newton Observations of the DLS Shear-Selected Cluster Survey

Author Prof John P. Hughes
Description We propose XMM-Newton observations of the 8 most massive clusters currently identified from the Deep Lens Survey (DLS). The DLS mass-selected cluster sample makes it possible for the first time to study clusters in a baryon-independent way. XMM-Newton observations will meet multiple high-impact scientific goals, specifically, testing the ..fair sample. hypothesis, calibrating the relationships between cluster mass and X-ray luminosity and temperature, and studying the evolution of these relationships with look-back time.

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.
