Description We propose to observe a radio galaxy, 4C 29.30 with XMM-Newton for 40ksec in order to study (1) the spectral properties of the nucleus; and (2) search for X-ray emission associated with the radio halo surrounding this source. This low redshift galaxy is embedded in a rich environment studied in optical and radio bands. The radio jets end just outside the host galaxy and this 60kpc structure is embedded in a ~600kpc radio halo. The good quality X-ray observations are missing. A short ~8ksec Chandra archival data with a low S-N do not allow for detailed analysis. Our new XMM-Newton observation will provide the best quality X-ray spectra of the radio core. The large field of view of the XMM-Newton is required for studies of any large scale emission associated with the radio halo.

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.
