|Title||Abell 1367: hierarchical growth through multiple mergers|
|Author||Dr Chong Ge|
|Description||Galaxy clusters grow hierarchically through the merger-accretion of smaller substructures along filaments. The dynamically young cluster A1367 is one of the best examples to study the cluster evolution because of its proximity and with abundant multi-wavelength data. Additional to the main merger along the NW-SE direction and a merger shock-radio relic at the NW, we also find evidences of another counter-shock at the SE and the accretion of group-filament along the Coma-A1367 supercluster. We propose XMM observations to complete a coverage of the R500 radius of A1367 to 1) explore the unique case of an extended shock radio-tail interaction; 2) study the dynamics of the cluster-filament transition region; and 3) search for X-ray tails-clumps associated with Halpha emission.|

|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.
