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.
