Title RGS observation of HD101088, a young binary accreting from a transition disk

Description HD101088 is a young binary accreting from a tenuous circumprimary and/or
circumsecondary disk despite the apparent lack of a massive dusty circumbinary
disk. We propose to observe it with RGS with an exposure of 60 ks to detect the
emission lines from the O VII He-like ion and look for potential high-density
plasma at the base of the accretion flows. HD101088 is a unique target to
investigate the physical properties of the accreting gas and the stellar corona
after the dissipation of the dust disk.

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.
