Title The dynamics of low-power (FRI) jets


DOI 10.5270/esa-r4271mz
Author Dr Judith Croston
Description The dynamics of low-power radio jets are largely determined by interactions with the surrounding X-ray emitting gas. Our previous Chandra and XMM-Newton observations of radio-galaxy environments have demonstrated the importance of X-ray observations in constraining the physical conditions and dynamics of radio galaxies on small and large scales. Here we propose to observe two of the best-studied FRI radio galaxies, for which we have high-resolution radio data and three-dimensional kinematic models, with the aim of measuring density and pressure in the X-ray emitting environment so as to constrain the jet models, to allow physical properties of the jets to be determined, and to investigate large-scale jet-environment interactions.

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.
