Title The Abell 3395-Abell 3391 Filament in the Horologium Supercluster

Author Dr Mark Henriksen
Description We will use the spectro-spatial capability of XMM to map the hot gas of the entire Abell 3395-Abell 3391 region of the Horologium supercluster. In particular, we will: (1) measure the baryon fraction for clusters, groups, and filamentary gas, (2) make temperature, pressure, and entropy maps to search for the merger and infall signatures of the complex Abell 3395 3-body system, (3) construct a dynamical model of the Abell 3395-Abell 3391 filament using the X-ray measured masses combined with the galaxy kinematical parameters obtained from Horologium Consortium collaborators, and (4) work with Horologium Consortium members on a multi-waveband analysis of galaxy evolution in the context of large-scale structure formation.

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.
