|Title||EXPLORING THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE X-RAY PROPERTIES & RECURRENT RADIO ACTIVITY|
|Author||Dr SANDRO BARDELLI|
|Description||We propose to fully exploit the XMM large collective area and capability in spatially resolving the interaction between the X-ray emission and the peculiar radio activity around the central galaxy of Abell 3560 located in the core of the Shapley Supercluster, the largest and richest system in the nearby Universe. This cluster shows evidence of dynamical disturbance and its central galaxy presents signs of repeated radio activity bursts. Our goal is the understanding of the overall picture which connects the dynamics of the cluster with the radio source bursts and the formation of cavities.|

|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.
