Title A Very Deep XMM-Newton Study of the rho Oph Star Forming Region


DOI 10.5270/esa-gkxcpp5
Author Prof Salvatore Sciortino
Description We propose a 500 ks, 8 days long, EPIC observation of rho Oph. Due to its distance (~ 140 pc), angular extent and strong absorption from a background cloud rho Oph is the best target for an XMM-Newton study of the complex phenomena at work in star forming regions. It hosts a wide range of YSOs from Class I and 0 to the Class II and III objects. About 90 YSOs ranging from Class I to Class III with pn rate > 1 cnt-ks fall in the proposed EPIC fov. For all such YSOs we will obtain spectacular data that will allow breaking new grounds by studying variability on a variety of time scales (flares, rotational modulations, enigmatic long-term variations) and by characterizing spectra variations in search of the signature of accretion and-or circumstellar fluorescent plasma.

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.
