Description We propose to study with XMM-Newton EPIC the spectral-temporal properties of two extraordinarily luminous ULXs (Ultra Luminous X-ray sources) detected with ROSAT and ASCA in the nearby spiral galaxies NGC1365 and NGC2276. Their luminosities \t exceed 10E40 erg-s. These observations will be crucial for constraining the \t properties of this rare class of exceptionally luminous galaxian sources, of \t which very little is known. Their nature is the object of vigorous scientific \t debate, with candidates including a new class of intermediate mass black holes \t (100-1000Mo) and less extreme beamed X-ray binaries. To exclude that they may be due to unresolved clumps of emission and to explore their immediate surroundings we also propose complementary Chandra ACIS-S 'snapshots. of the XMM targets.\t

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.
