|Title||THE HOT ISM OF THE BLUE COMPACT DWARF GALAXY HE 2-10|
|Author||Dr POLYCHRONIS PAPADEROS|
|Description||The blue compact dwarf (BCD) galaxy He 2-10 is an excellent nearby laboratory to study the formation and evolution of hot plasma in the presence of ongoing and intense starburst activity. Previous multiwavelength studies have revealed that the energetic output of the starburst has led to a bipolar outflow of hot gas expanding from the nuclear starburst region into the ambient HI halo with a velocity of virgul250 km-sec. Deep XMM-Newton X-ray data will allow us to study the metallicity and thermodynamic properties of the extended X-ray emission in He 2-10 and put constraints on its starburst-driven evolution.|

|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.
