Title A Search for X-ray Emission from the 7000-Year-Old Pulsar J1357-6429


DOI 10.5270/esa-yus27pg
Author Dr Fernando Camilo
Description PSR J1357-6429 is a very young (7 kyr) and nearby (~2.5 kpc) energetic radio pulsar apparently associated with the supernova remnant candidate G309.8-2.6. The only existing X-ray observations of this system were obtained in the ROSAT All-Sky Survey that apparently show a bright extended source positionally coincident with the pulsar and with a candidate supernova remnant detected at radio wavelengths. We here propose a short XMM observation in order to establish the basic properties of this system. If, as expected, this is a bright X-ray source, the requested 10 ksec observation should begin to reveal spectroscopic and morphological details of the pulsar wind nebula-pulsar and form the basis for future more detailed studies.

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.
