Title X-ray clues on the ultimate fate of compact radio sources

Author Dr Matteo Guainazzi
Description Are compact radio galaxies intrinsically X-ray weak? Do they otherwise live in dense environments? If the latter is true, does the nuclear gas affect the jet evolution in radio-loud Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN)? In order to answer these questions, we propose to observe within the XMM-Newton AO5 a radio-selected complete sample of Giga-Hertz Peaked (GPS) galaxies. We request 9 objects, for a total allocation time of 210 ks. The proposed observations will provide clues on the nature of compact radio sources, and on the ultimate fate of small-scale radio structure evolution.

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.
