Description GT- We propose to investigate the X-ray properties of the Galactic Centre region as a whole, including the diffuse emission and the compact source population. A broad-ranging approach is required to understand this complex environment. In particular, we plan to study the relation between the diffuse emission and the compact sources, via Compton diffusion or via the energetic activity of the Galactic Centre. This region has a high density of discrete X-ray sources and strong diffuse emission extending for about one square-degree around the centre. XMM is perfectly suited to the proposed investigation through its capability to perform high throughput-high precision spectro-imaging on both diffuse and point-like sources of emission.

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.
