Description The properties of neutron star magnetospheres and relativistic winds down to light cylinder scale can be constrained with unprecedented precision by multiwavelength observations of suitable double neutron star binaries (DNSBs). PSR J1537+1155 and PSR J0737 3039 are the only firmly identified DNSBs detected with the current generation of X-ray telescopes. Because of its higher orbital eccentricity, J1537+1155 offers a unique opportunity for the identification and study of NSs interaction signatures, such as flux orbital modulation. The presence of detectable X-ray emission from this system is guaranteed by Chandra observations, but the crucial claims about orbital variability can be confirmed and better investigated only by XMM-Newton.

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.
