Author Dr John Mulchaey
Description We propose an XMM-Newton survey of a sample of nearby galaxy groups and poor clusters selected from the ROSAT All-Sky Survey. The groups have been selected to overlap with the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. The XMM observations will be combined with optical imaging and spectroscopy from the SDSS to: 1) Determine the properties of the intragroup medium in a representative sample of X-ray groups; 2) Extend the recent studies of the temperature and mass profiles of rich clusters down to the scales of groups; 3) Measure entropy profiles to constrain the role of heating and cooling in groups; 4) Provide a comparison sample for intermediate-redshift groups being studied with XMM and 5) Compare the AGN populations in X-ray groups to clusters.

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.
