Title The Deep Impact of AGN Feedback in M84


DOI 10.5270/esa-nqq55da
Author Mr Steven Ehlert
Description We propose deep observations of M84 with XMM in conjunction with H-alpha imaging from VLT that will elucidate the effects of AGN feedback on the IGM. M84 is a bright elliptical galaxy with clear cavities inflated by the AGN. We will be able to use detailed thermodynamic maps to identify the locations and extent of shock heating and constrain the energy budget of the AGN. We will also examine in detail the transport of low entropy gas using these maps in conjunction with H-alpha imaging. Using RGS we will place limits on cooling around the central engine and the level of turbulence generated in the wake of rising cavities. Finally, we will be able to probe the nature of the IGM between M84 and M86 with a mosaic of pointings.

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.
