Description CAL-RGS wavelength scale calibrations For the MOS cameras a default offset table needs to be used, in place of a calculated one. PV-We will acquire high resolution spectra of AB Dor with the RGS, in order to study the physical characteristics of the stellar corona. The source will be observed for 100,000 sec, which covers two rotational periods. This dataset will demonstrate the potential of the RGS for performing phase-resolved spectroscopy.

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.
