Description The galactic superluminal motion sources GRS 1915+105 and GRO J1655-40 are thought to be binary systems containing a stellar-size (7-30 M_sun) black hole. Yet, they show distinctly different X-ray properties during their active states than usual black hole transients. We propose to observe these sources with XMM to search for clues regarding the origin of relativistic jets, to probe the properties of the compact object, and to understand the various spectral components and their evolution as the sources journey through different accretion states. The brightness of these objects allows only RGS and EPIC PN burst mode observations.

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.
