Title Chemical Enrichment in the Third Closest Galaxy Cluster

Author Dr Evan Million
Description We propose a 180 ks XMM-Newton observation of the Antlia Cluster, the third closest galaxy cluster in the sky. We will determine the central temperature, Si and Fe abundance structure of the cluster to constrain detailed chemical enrichment processes in the nearest cluster without a strong cool core. The detailed abundance structure of the cluster will be resolved at the best physical resolution of any non-cool core cluster to date.

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.
