Description The well-established X-ray/FIR luminosity correlation suggests that X-ray
luminosity may be a star-formation rate indicator. We propose to test this
hypothesis with a survey of unbiased galaxies with very well known
star-formation rates due to extinction-corrected, integrated Halpha
luminosities. The resultant X-ray/SFR correlation will allow X-rays to be used
reliably as a star-formation rate indicator. This will allow the high-z
detections of star-forming galaxies to be assessed properly. It will also
fascilitate the addition of X-ray points to SFR evolution plots using X-ray
galaxy luminosity density estimates. Our study will also result in an unbiased
X-ray/H-alpha luminosity correlation for galaxies.

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.
