|Title||Probing the interplay between the intragroup medium and galaxies with XMM|
|Author||Dr Francesco Miniati|
|Description||The success of current galaxy evolution models hinges critically on the role of AGN and SN feedback. We propose for X-ray observations with XMM-Newton to study 20 galaxy groups in ZENS with known galaxy and AGN populations to test the role of AGN and galaxy feedback in such models. The proposed XMM X-ray data will also quantify to what extent the intra-group medium affects galaxy evolution, in the ordinary intermediate-density environment of galaxy groups, through physical processes such as ram pressure and strangulation.|

|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.
