Description The objective of this observation is the discovery of X-ray emission from Saturn. By analogy to the Earth and Jupiter, auroral X-ray emission may be the result of ion precipitation or elelectron bremsstrahlung. A 50 ksec observation of Saturn will be more sensitive than any previous observation of the planet by almost two orders of magnitude. If ion precipitation is the dominant mechanism, detection is expected. Detection will extend our knowledge of auroral processes from the UV to the X-ray region, and set the stage for further observations to determine spatial distribution and spectral shape as steps in understanding the interaction mechanisms involved.

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.
