|Title||Cluster and galaxy interactions in dense environment: Shapley supercluster core|
|Author||Dr Herve Bourdin|
|Description||The Shapley Supercluster core hosts a remarkably dense structure showing three galaxy clusters --A3562 A3558, A3556-- and two galaxy groups --SC1327-312, SC1329-313-- connected to each other by a filament of hot gas and galaxies. A combined analysis of X-ray and optical data will enable us to investigate thermodynamics of the ICM overcoming group and cluster interactions, and constrain the influence of galaxy-ICM interactions in the global budget of the environmental effects affecting galaxy evolution. We will further search for X-ray emission from the hottest phase of the WHIM, by separating ICM and filament emissions. Following an AO8 proposal, this proposal aims at re-observing a region where pointings are contaminated by soft protons and extending the observed area.|

|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.
