Title Plasma in the Jovian magnetosphere: X-ray+EUV study of aurora & Io plasma torus


DOI 10.5270/esa-n0kwoxx
Author Dr Ralph Kraft
Description We propose 4x40 ks Chandra-HRC-I and 2x40 ks XMM-Newton observations of the Jovian aurora and Io plasma torus in conjunction with the Japanese SPRINT-A satellite. SPRINT-A will continuously observe Jupiter from Dec 2013 to Apr 2014, making sensitive EUV spectroscopic observations of the aurora and IPT. We will correlate variations in the X-ray flux from the aurora and IPT with changes in the EUV flux observed by SPRINT-A and with the properties of the solar wind. We will conclusively resolve the puzzle of the origin of the Jovian X-ray emission and determine if the precipitating particles originate from Io or from the solar wind.

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.
