|Title||Filamentary structures within SZ superclusters discovered in the Planck survey|
|Author||Dr Etienne Pointecouteau|
|Description||We propose a detailed investigation of the nature of two super-structures discovered in the Planck survey and confirmed by XMM-Newton snapshot observations. We aim at constraining the presence and properties of filamentary structures connecting and surrounding the clusters. From this joint XMM-Newton-VLT proposal and together with the Planck SZE measurement and a lensing analysis, we will unveil the overall dynamics of these two complex structures and established their detailed pressure distribution. Thus we will perform a direct search for structures in between identified superclusters components from an X-ray-optical analysis, and a careful comparison with precise Planck SZE measurements.|

|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.
