Title Exploring New Inverse-Compton Sources in Radio Galaxies


DOI 10.5270/esa-fiztlmb
Author Prof Kazuo Makishima
Description Observations are proposed for two radio galaxies with medium radio fluxes, 3C 98 and 3C 386. A 30 ks exposure onto each will enable detections of diffuse inverse-Compton X-rays from their radio lobes. This will yield accurate estimates of the lobe magnetic field strength and the relativisitic electron energy density.

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.
