Description Current models of galaxy evolution rely critically on feedback supernova and AGN
feedback processes. The energy released by past star formation and AGN activity
imprints a fossil record on the thermodynamic properties of the
intra-group-medium (IGM). This can be decoded by studying the X-ray emission.
for an unbiased sample of groups with known galaxy and AGN properties. Therefore
we propose an X-ray survey with XMM-Newton for 255 ksec to observe 17 galaxy
groups with Msim10^{13} M_odot selected from our Zurich ENvironmental Survey
that host >8 members.

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.
