|Title||The XMM Large Scale Structure Survey|
|Author||Dr Marguerite PIERRE|
|Description||We have designed a project with the comprehensive goal of mapping the distribution of matter over a 8x8 sq.deg. area out to a redshift virgul1 using three complementary approaches: (1) X-ray: galaxy clusters and QSOs; (2) optical: galaxy and dark matter through a weak lensing analysis; (3) Sunyaev-Zel.dovich effect: diffuse extragalactic hot gas. The proposed XMM survey at a sensitivity of virgul 5 E-15 erg-s-cm2 in the [0.5-2] keV band will enable the construction of an homogeneous sample|

|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.
