Title XMM Study of the thermodynamic signature of the missing baryons


DOI 10.5270/esa-lkmgwu5
Author Dr Alexis Finoguenov
Description We pick up five systems from the ROSAT ALL-Sky Survey -- Center for Astrophysics Loose Systems (RASSCALS) catalog, which exhibit high X-ray luminosity, given the velosity dispertion of their galaxies. We suggest that these objects are the tracers of the state of baryons in the warm intergalactic medium.

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.
