Title The X-ray source population of different stellar generations in the LMC


DOI 10.5270/esa-0lnsbka
Author Dr Vallia Antoniou
Description We propose XMM-Newton observations of 6 regions of the Large Magellanic Cloud with the strongest "clean" star-formation (SF) episodes in the ~6-50 Myr age range. These observations will probe the X-ray source populations in regions of different stellar content down to a luminosity of ~10^33 erg-s in our nearest star-forming galaxy thus addressing their dependence on their parent stellar populations (starburst age, metallicity etc.) The proposed observations will complement previous X-ray studies of the LMC and investigations in other galaxies where these faint XRBs cannot be observed.

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.
