Description We propose to observe the z=0.345 cluster RXJ1532.9+3021, one of the most extreme cooling flows known, discovered by us as part of the BCS. We aim to carry out detailed modelling of the massive cooling flow, mapping out the range of inmogeneities throughout the cluster, and the spatial distribution of the absorbing material. We will determine the cluster mass profile for both the X-ray gas and total gravitating mass, and its baryon fraction. We will investigate whether the excessive star formation activity has an observable effect on both

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.
