My  research offers explanations for the creation of Ring galaxies, Hoag's
Objects and Cartwheel galaxies. It also predicts the collapse of the largest
super massive black holes down to the step in the distribution of supermassive 
black holes. If the collapse accelerates close to the speed of light it would
occur in a number of hours.

Would it be possible for a contingency plan to be put in place to allow the
XMM-Newton to respond to the first detected collapse and obtain details of the
event at the earliest possible opportunity?

Dear Anthony William Green,

 XMM-Newton observations are carried out on the basis of proposals from the
scientific community that have been evaluated and approved by a Time Allocation
Committee (TAC). The TAC meets once a year and reviews proposals submitted in
response to the annual call for proposals. The Policies and Procedures for this
process are explained under
http://xmm.esac.esa.int/external/xmm_user_support/documentation/AOpolicy/index.html

 The next Announcement of Opportunity (AO) will be this fall, see timeline
under:
http://xmm.esac.esa.int/external/xmm_science/AO14/

If you want to familiarize yourself with more details on the procedure, you can
consult the information that we have provided for the previous cycle under:
http://xmm.esac.esa.int/external/xmm_science/AO13/index.shtml
It will be similar in the upcoming cycle.

The best way to work out a contingency plan is therefore that you write a
proposal of 4 pages that explains the scientific goals and the requirements
(e.g., observing plan, instrumental setup, exposure time etc) to achieve these
goals. Also an assessment of feasibility will be needed, and you can submit the
proposal between 2014 August 26 and October 10.

 If for any reason, the observations can not wait until the next regular call
for proposals, we also provide an interface to inform us of such opportunities
under:
http://xmm2.esac.esa.int/external/xmm_sched/too/too_alert.shtml
 A limited amount of time can be granted for exceptionally important targets,
however, exceptional justification is needed in this case.

 Hope this information is useful.
Best wishes,
Jan-Uwe Ness
