|Title||The XUV irradiation of the young exo-planets around V1298 Tau|
|Author||Dr Serena Benatti|
|Description||We propose joint XMM-Newton (30ks) and HST observations (3 orbits) of the nearby K young star V1298 Tau (virgul20Myr) hosting four transiting exoplanets discovered with Kepler (K2), and included in a follow-up optical-IR campaign with HARPS-N and GIANO-B@TNG. These young planets have radii between 5.6 and 10.3 R_Earth and they are located between 0.08 and virgul0.3 AU from the host. They are still experiencing the contraction phase toward their final sizes and are subject to photoevaporation effects at different rates. Our immediate objective is to reconstruct the full XUV spectrum, and to assess the spectral and time variability of the host star. In this way we will characterize its activity level and the dose of high- energy radiation received by those very young planets.|

|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.
