Description The recent detection of magnetic fields in massive stars has profoundly changed
our understanding of the structure and evolution of these objects. In addition,
detailed modelling shows that intense magnetic fields can have a strong impact
on the X-ray emission. Currently, only a few tens of magnetic hot stars are
known, not all of them have been observed at high energies. The observed
diversity of behaviours in the few studied objects actually prevent us from
recognizing the overall trends. By extending the sample size, we will be able to
undertake such a systematic study of the X-ray properties of magnetic massive
stars, which will help us better understand which parameters govern their
high-energy emission.

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.
