Description We propose to observe 13 nearby edge-on disk galaxies for a total exposure of 604ks. These, together with archival data, will enable us to conduct a systematic X-ray survey of 32 such galaxies, which will also be observed with EVLA in an approved 405hr large program. The combination of these radio-X-ray data will enable an unprecedented study of galactic feedback from AGN, SF and evolved stars, particularly in terms of the interplay of hot gas outflows with magnetic fields and cosmic-rays in regulating the galactic ecosystem. Specifically, we will examine the origins, context and dynamics of the flows and their relationships to the galaxy mass, SFR and environment. Understandings of these issues in nearby galaxies will serve as a benchmark for the study of similar processes in more distant galaxies.

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.
