Description We propose to observe the most massive, M500 = 6x10e14 Msun, infrared selected galaxy cluster MOO J1142+1527 discovered in the MaDCoWS survey at z=1.2.Deep XMM observations will allow us to determine the gas morphology at large scale and extract the radial density, temperature, pressure and hydrostatic mass profiles up to R500.X-rays will be complemented by NIKA2, an instrument which will perform Sunyaev-Zel Dovich observations with the same spatial resolution as XMM.This will allow us to explore the robustness of mass determination and estimate the non-thermal pressure support for the first time at z>1.Supported also by rich ancillary optical,infrared, and Chandra observations, we will be able to obtain a complete picture of the spatially resolved halo properties of this extreme cluster.

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.
