|Title||THE X-RAY PROPERTIES OF A WELL STUDIED EXTREMELY RED OBJECT|
|Author||Dr JOSE AFONSO|
|Description||Strongly dust obscured galaxies are believed to hold the key to understanding galaxy evolution. This has only been revealed over the past few years, with studies in different wavelength windows (NIR, sub-mm and X-rays) discovering an important population of dusty galaxies. Characterizing these sources, often identified through their extreme optical-NIR colours, has been so far hampered by their faintness and large distances. Here we propose to perform the first detailed X-ray study of an Extremely Red Object, by observing the nearest and most well studied ERO to date. Unlike any other galaxy in the local Universe, this source offers a unique opportunity for a detailed X-ray study of an ERO, necessary to begin understanding the more distant dusty galaxy population.|

|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.
