|Title||XMM observations of Abell 545 and Abell 697|
|Author||Dr Greg Madejski|
|Description||We propose XMM-Newton observations of two clusters of galaxies, Abell 545 and Abell 697, at 30 ks each. The two will complete the XMM observations of our sample of 15 clusters with good Sunyaev-Zeldovich measurements. With the available or impending gravitational lensing data, this sample will aid in determining many cluster scaling relations, and thus will be valuable for the future uses of clusters in cosmology.|

|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.
