Description The AWM 7 cluster is a nearby bright cluster (z=0.017; kT=3.7 keV), which forms a part of the Perseus- Pisces filament. We propose to map the AWM 7 cluster to cover 0.3-1 r500 with 8 pointings with a 200 ks total exposure. One objective is to derive Si abundance out to r500. With Suzaku data out to the virial radius, we will be able to constrain the ratio of the Si mass in the ICM and total stellar luminosity of galaxies out to the virial radius. Another objective is to derive two-dimensional maps of temperature and entropy, and with the Suzaku data out to the virial radius, and to study history of accretion along the filament and gas heating.

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.
