|Title||Investigating the nature of the new TeV hot spot at the south of HESS J1837-069|
|Author||Mr Vincent Marandon|
|Description||Most HESS sources are very extended objects for which counterparts are difficult to find. But all point like or quasi point like objects have rich X-ray counterparts. In particular, XMM observations of HESS J1813-178 and HESS J1640-465 have revealed bright X-ray nebulae inside radio shells. We propose to observe the newly discovered quasi point like source lying at the south of HESS J1837-069, which is devoid of any X-ray observations and lacking MWL counterparts. Its TeV characteristics are suggestive of a possible young pulsar wind nebula association. We propose to test this hypothesis using a 20 ks XMM pointing.|

|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.
