Description Observations of NGC 2685 and NGC 3982 are requested to complete the XMM Survey of a Distance-Limited Sample of Seyfert Galaxies accepted in the Guarantee Time of EPIC. Such proposal, whose final original form is attached below, consisted in an XMM Survey of a Distance-Limited sample of 28 Seyfert Galaxies for a total of 275 Ks and was accepted integrally after merging with other GT time (e.g. RGS GT time, SSC GT time, etc.). Unfortunately, two sources (NGC 2685 and NGC 3982) of the sample did NOT appear in the GT list distributed by SOC. As refered to us by the PI of EPIC Martin Turner, the exclusion of these two objects had not been decided by him but is certainly due to a misunderstanding -error. Therefore , we propose both objects in the AO1 time (truncated).

Mission Description The European Space Agency's (ESA) X-ray Multi-Mirror Mission (XMM-Newton) was launched by an Ariane 504 on December 10th 1999. XMM-Newton is ESA's second cornerstone of the Horizon 2000 Science Programme. It carries 3 high throughput X-ray telescopes with an unprecedented effective area, and an optical monitor, the first flown on a X-ray observatory. The large collecting area and ability to make long uninterrupted exposures provide highly sensitive observations.
Since Earth's atmosphere blocks out all X-rays, only a telescope in space can detect and study celestial X-ray sources. The XMM-Newton mission is helping scientists to solve a number of cosmic mysteries, ranging from the enigmatic black holes to the origins of the Universe itself. Observing time on XMM-Newton is being made available to the scientific community, applying for observational periods on a competitive basis.
