Title Accretion in an old nova and in an old nova candidate


DOI 10.5270/esa-es3i80g
Author Dr Marina Orio
Description We proposed to observe the quiescent nova CP Pup. This system is a known X-ray source at low inclination, so it is an ideal targets to study how accretion occurs. CP Pup has a short orbital period, allowing a useful comparison with longer period systems that have been observedin X-rays. Spectroscopy will be used to measure mdot and test theories of secular evolution, timing analysis will be used to localize and constrain the size of the emitting region.

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.
