Description X-ray mapping of the Perseus cluster, the brightest cluster in the X-ray sky, with XMM-Newton is the most effective way to study physics of cluster dynamics. In the east region of this cluster, ASCA showed remarkable temperature features including an enormous cool region bounded by a hot ridge in the east, which is most possibly caused by a subcluster merger. We propose 7 pointings (including 2 pointings of AO2-Pri-C) for a total of 140 ksec to cover most of the unobserved regions in the Perseus cluster, which will give us a detailed view about the gas heating process and metal distribution.

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.
