Title XMM observations of Intermediate Polars SSC_24

Description GT- We will observe the soft X-ray bright intermediate polar RXJ0558.0+5353 for one orbital period in order to characterise the soft and hard X-ray spectrum at geometries. The proposed propeller CV AE Aqr will be observed in order to understand the relationship between the various spectral components and the anticipated emssions sites. In so doing, we will elucidate the relationshsip between the flares and the white dwarf spin pulses.

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.
