Title Probing the interplay between the intragroup medium and galaxies with XMM

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.
