Title A Highly Unusual Nonthermal Shell -- X-ray Binary System in IC 10


DOI 10.5270/esa-0wq4nsl
Author Dr Rosa Williams
Description We propose to examine the nearest starburst galaxy, IC 10, with particular emphasis on a large, distinct shell of nonthermal radio emission. XMM-Newton observations will be used to distinguish between three possible scenarios for the formation of this shell: outflow from a luminous X-ray binary; enhancement of superbubble emission by a recent event; or a one-time input from a massive explosion. The results are expected to add to our knowledge of the distribution of heavy elements and hot gas from massive-stars and supernovae within a galaxy; and possibly provide clues to other energetic features such as HI shells and gamma-ray bursts.

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.
