XMM-Newton Education and Public Outreach

XMM-Newton is a joint NASA-European Space Agency (ESA) orbiting observatory, designed to observe high-energy X-rays emitted from exotic astronomical objects such as pulsars, black holes and active galaxies. It was launched on December 10, 1999 from the ESA base at Kourou, French Guiana and continues to make observations today.

This web site is part of the XMM-Newton Education and Public Outreach (E/PO) effort headed by the NASA E/PO group at Sonoma State University in Sonoma County, California.
