|Title||A deep X-ray study of the starforming region IC348 SSC_44|
|Author||Dr Michael Watson|
|Description||We propose XMM pointings towards the star-forming region IC348. A large number of X-ray sources have already been found by ROSAT in this cluster. The XMM data will be considerably more sensitive, especially for the young objects still embedded in the molecular cloud. XMM will allow us to find the population of pre main sequence stars with a much higher degree of completeness than the previous ROSAT observations. Furthermore, we can investigate the X-ray spectra and the temporal variability of a large number of T Tauri stars. Finally, these observations will allow us to ..X-ray. the dense cloud cores and to search for X-ray emission from deeply embedded protostars.|

|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.
