Title A Deep XMM-Newton Legacy Survey of M33


DOI 10.5270/esa-gkhanmn

Description We request 190 ks of additional XMM-Newton time to complete our accepted 700 ks AO-9 Legacy program survey of M33. Rather than pad our AO-9 request to account for high background periods, we decided to proceed nominally and assess the background in the actual data. Four of the fields lost from 30 to 80 ks of their planned 100 ks time. We propose observations of these significantly impacted fields to bring the overall depth of exposure on each field to a similar level, thus improving the analysis. The complete survey will cover the entire region enclosed by the D25 isophote, providing extensive information on the timing of XRBs, the spectra of the largest known population of extragalactic SNRs, and the connections between star formation and the hot component of the ISM.

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.
