|Title||EVOLUTION OF AGN IN THE COSMIC WEB: THE HST+VIMOS+SWIRE COSMOS FIELD|
|Author||Prof GUENTHER HASINGER|
|Description||We propose a mosaic of medium-deep XMM pointings to homogeneously cover a large (2 deg**2) and contiguous area of the COSMOS-VIMOS field. This field is (1) part of a breakthrough spectroscopic survey carried out using the French-Italian VIMOS consortium.s 70 nights of guaranteed VLT time, to provide redshifts for all the objects with I_AB<24, and (2) target of the Cosmos HST-ACS treasury program, carried out using 640 HST orbits, to understand the interplay between Large Scale Structure, evolution and the formation of galaxies, Dark Matter - Energy and AGN. The main scientific objectives are the study of the formation and evolution of supermassive black holes, the cosmic evolution of their spatial distribution and the correlation with galaxy morphology and evolution.|

|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.
