Hi,
I was wondering if you might be able to answer a
couple of questions I have regarding a company called
Atlantic Satellite Marketing
(www.atlantic-satellite.com).  They claim to monitor
music transfers from many satellites and put together
a monthly top 2,500 song play-list based on this
information.
My questions are:
-They list an XMM Satellite as one that they monitor. 
Does the XMM Satellite transfer music signals?
-If it does, can it be tracked to know exactly what
music it is transferring?

What I'm getting at is that I find it hard to believe
the claims they make.  But having no knowledge of how
satellites work, I could very well be wrong.  I hope
I'm not wasting your time and appreciate any
information you may be able to provide.
Thank you,
Brian

Dear Brian,

you are right, XMM-Newton does not transmit music, it is a satellite that
receives X-rays emission from celestial objects (planets, stars, galaxies, etc.)
and transmit this information to earth, where scientists can study them. 
For more information please have a look at:

Kind regards,

Nora
