Title Galaxy evolution in the large scale structure around two PISCES galaxy clusters

Description The effect of environment is an essential, but poorly understood ingredient in galaxy formation. We propose to measure the gas and dark matter in the clumps and filaments around two massive distant galaxy clusters. By combining high quality XMM data with our existing wide-field optical-NIR imaging and spectroscopy we will perform a census of the baryons in the large scale structure around these clusters and measure the effects of environment on the fundamental physical properties of the member galaxies.

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.
