|Title||EPIC Gain, contamination and CTI monitoring-1ES0102|
|Author||Dr Fred Jansen XMM-Newton PS|
|Description||ROUTINE CAL - The AXAF standard cable source, 1ES0102-72 in the SMC region will be observed periodically. The strong emission lines at low energies will be measured to determine the CCD gain and CTI at the boresight location. In addition, apparent secular changes in various emission line strengths may be used to track contamination build-up. Note: obs 20, 21, 22, 23 are for NRCO#38 obs 24 is for NRCO 37; obs 27 for MOS on-patch pointing|

|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.
