Description We propose to obtain a deep image of the redshift z=0.22 cluster MS0735.6+7421. The cluster.s enormous system of cavities and shocks are depositing 5-8E61erg into the ICM. Heating the cluster at a level of virgul1-2 keV per particle, this is enough energy to quench a 200 M0-yr cooling flow for several Gyr and to .preheat. the cluster. The image will be used to examine the impact of AGN heating on the L-T relation, to constrain the temperature of the gas filling the cavities, to measure the temperature jump across the shock, and to search for evidence of earlier outbursts.

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.
