Title Are Jupiter s Pulses Signatures of Global or Local Wave-Particle Interactions

Author Dr William Dunn
Description Jupiter is the local-space archetype for many astrophysical bodies which cannot be visited in-situ such as exoplanets, pulsars and brown dwarfs. Over the last 2 years, simultaneous Juno and XMM-Newton (XMM) Jupiter observations have provided a paradigm-shift in our understanding of how planets produce X-rays. Since Juno has no X-ray instrument, this rich array of discoveries would not have been possible without XMM. Significantly, Juno and XMM have revealed that Jupiter s X-ray aurora is produced when ion cyclotron waves in Jupiter.s magnetosphere inject energetic ions into the pole. So far, Juno has only explored Jupiter.s dawn-midnight sector, but for the remainder of its mission (end July 2021), it will explore the midnight-dusk sector. [see pdf for complete abstract]

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.
