Title A legacy survey of WR binaries - Part III

Description We propose to continue our magnitude-limited survey of well-known WR binaries that were never observed in X-rays. This detection experiment aims at improving the knowledge of the X-ray emission of colliding wind systems in a variety of situations (i.e. spanning a range of different stellar and orbital parameters). It has a legacy value, as such detections are the starting point of detailed studies.

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.
