Description We propose joint Chandra-XMM observations of two powerful FRII radio galaxies at the centers of the two nearby Abell clusters 1836 and 578. The r^ance of the proposed research comes from the fact that, on one hand, heating of clusters by AGN requires large jet powers (appropriate for FRII galaxies), while on the other hand, the majority of the currently studied cases of cD-hosted radio-loud AGN are in fact low-power FR I sources. As the two targets are the only FR II radio galaxies known at the centers of local (z<0.25) Abell clusters, the proposed observations will enable us for investigating the role of powerful jets in cluster heating, by constraining the source energetics and resolving various X-ray features within and outside the radio structures embedded in the clusters.

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.
