Title The Creation of the Intracluster Medium in High-z Galaxy Clusters


DOI https://doi.org/10.5270/esa-pynkepz
Author Dr Adam Stanford
Description We propose to observe a newly discovered galaxy cluster around the radio galaxy 3C 210 at z=1.17. We intend to obtain a 20 Ksec ACIS exposure to identify point sources, which can severely bias measurements of extended emission in high-z clusters, and to study the radio galaxy itself. We also ask to obtain a 100 ks EPIC exposure to measure the properties of the intracluster medium including its X-ray temperature and morphology. These observations will help to understand the way that galaxy clusters create an ICM as they evolve from the protoclusters recently discovered at 2

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.
