|Title||The Highest Redshift Galaxy Cluster|
|Author||Dr Spencer Stanford|
|Description||We propose to obtain EPIC observations of an IR-selected galaxy cluster at z=1.41, currently the highest redshift of a known cluster. The target cluster is among the richest found at z > 1 in our IRAC survey of the 9 square degree Bootes field. The X-ray data will allow us to determine 1) if the cluster already has created a hot intracluster medium, as is suggested by a detection in shallow Chandra data, 2) the temperature and luminosity of the ICM, 3) the total cluster mass, and 4) the total cluster mass to light ratio.|

|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.
