Description Covering the central 20*2.5deg2 of the Milky Way disc with 20ks XMM exposures will allow us to measure the flows of hot baryons emerging from the energetic activity in the disc, to detail their impact on the surroundings and to connect the sources in the disc with the base of the Galactic outflow. By connecting the requested XMM scan with the shallow all sky eROSITA survey, we will determine whether the activity in the Galactic disc is important for feeding and sustaining the Galactic corona. This study will provide us with an excellent archetype for advancing our understanding of galaxy evolution theory in a Milky-Way-class galaxy. This project will produce a legacy dataset that will be used in the future for multiple purposes, including multi-wavelength and time-domain investigations.

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.
