Title Hunt for echoes of powerful outbursts in the BCG 3C196.1: a XMM+Chandra look


DOI https://doi.org/10.5270/esa-chjumrs
Author Dr Federica Ricci
Description We propose 91ks XMM and 40ks Chandra joint observation of the cluster that hosts the radio galaxy 3C196.1. The Chandra snapshot observation of 3C196.1 shows a wealth of structures, indicative of complex dynamical interactions between the ICM and 3C196.1. XMM is requested for 91ks to investigate the cluster outskirts and determine the echoes of past outbursts related to 3C196.1, measure the cavity in surface brightness (SB) at virgul300kpc scale, aligned with the inner jet. We will measure discontinuities in SB and in temperature to constrain AGN-, merging-driven shock or sloshing. Chandra 40ks observation will be combined with the already available 8ks to derive high angular resolution SB morphology of the inner core, investigate the cavities and directly probe kinetic feedback in action.

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.
