|Title||Juno and XMM-Newton.s final search for drivers of Jupiter.s X-ray aurorae|
|Author||Ms Affelia Wibisono|
|Description||Simultaneous observations with XMM-Newton and Juno over the last 3 years have revolutionised our understanding of the coupling between Jupiter.s magnetosphere and ionosphere leading to new theories of how planets can produce X-rays. For example, evidence is building from joint XMM-Newton and Juno observations that ion cyclotron waves are one of the drivers for the gas giant.s X-ray aurorae. However, we only have one more opportunity to utilise the unique capabilities of XMM-Newton and Juno before the jovian explorer is due to finish its mission in July 2021. Juno is now in the dusk sector of Jupiter.s magnetosphere - a region that no other spacecraft will visit again for at least another decade.|

|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.
