10 Years in Orbit: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, XMM-Newton!

Today, XMM-Newton is celebrating its  10th anniversary. On the 10th of
December  1999 at  14:32 GMT  the European  Space  Agency's XMM-Newton
observatory  was launched  and started  exploring the  wonders  of the
X-ray universe.

During  its first decade  of operations,  XMM-Newton has  supplied new
data to  every aspect of  astronomy, improving our  understanding from
nearby comets to the most distant quasars and gamma-ray bursts.

A dedicated web site celebrating this event is available at:


We wish all the best to XMM-Newton for the years to come.

We take this  opportunity to thank you all  for your continued support
and interest in the mission.

Yours sincerely,
XMM-Newton SOC
