We report on first results 1 of XMM-Newton observations of nearby starburst galaxies that form part of a multi-wavelength study of gaseous halos around late-type spiral galaxies and their dependence on the level of star formation activity in the underlying disks. XMM-Newton, with its extraordinary sensitivity for faint extended X-ray emission, is used to… CONTINUE READING
