Title Large Scale Intracluster Gas Properties of the Brightest Galaxy Cluster


DOI 10.5270/esa-sn9gh9s

Description Nearby galaxy clusters present a unique opportunity to study the spatial variation of the physical properties of the ICM and they also provide us with templates to test the biases introduced by simplifications assumed in the analysis of more distant clusters. Perseus stands out as the optimal choice for such an analysis, due to its brightenss, proximity, and ubiquitous physical characteristics. We propose 4 short observations that will allow us to completely map SN Type enrichment, gas bulk velocities, and other physical parameters up to ~0.3-0.4 of its virial radius. This analysis will address several current issues, such as the excess SN Ia pollution in the outer cluster regions and the claimed presence of velocity gradients in the ICM.

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.
