Title Confirmation of an intermediate mass black hole in a nucleated dwarf spheroidal


DOI 10.5270/esa-9zoizmb
Author Dr Kajal Ghosh
Description We have detected a potential intermediate mass black hole in a nucleated dwarf spheroidal non-active galaxy, based on the ROSAT observations. Confirmation of this excitingly rare object will have important astrophysical implications. Here we propose only 10 ks XMM-Newton observations of this object.

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.
