Description We are currently in a period of rapid advancement in our understanding of the nature of short-duration hard-spectrum gamma-ray bursts. A handful of this minority subclass have finally been localized, allowing for identification of their host galaxies. These hosts have been found to span a range of spectral types and star-formation rates. Particularly intriguing is the association of two short GRBs with galaxies that are part of clusters. We propose relatively short XMM observations of all well-localized short GRBs without existing XMM or Chandra observations to better determine the relationship between short GRBs and galaxy clusters as well as determine the properties (e.g., cluster mass) of the large-scale host environments.

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.
