|Title||THE NATURE OF THE LARGE-SCALE X-RAY JET FROM 4U 1755-33|
|Author||Dr PHILIP KAARET|
|Description||Recent XMM-Newton observations have led to the discovery of a large scale X-ray jet from the long-term X-ray transient and black hole candidate 4U 1755--33. We propose a follow-up XMM-Newton observation of the jet to be made contemporaneously with radio and optical-IR observations which will permit us to constrain the nature of the emission process and study the evolution of the jet. These observations will constrain the overall energetics of the jet emission and help us understand the interactions of black hole jets with the interstellar medium.|

|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.
