Title Heating Front around the Infalling Subcluster IC 310 in the Perseus Cluster

Author European Space Agency
Description The infalling IC310 subcluster in the south west of the Perseus cluster enables
us to look into the thermal structure in the heating front. We expect that the
temperature map and density maps based on the XMM-Newton data would reveal a
bow-shock feature and tell us how the electron temperature is raised and the
heat is transferred to surrounding regions with high statistical quality. In
addition, X-ray brightness in and aruond the radio tail of IC 310 should show us
an importance of non-thermal heating in the low-pressure environment where the
cooling is negligible.

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.
