Description GT- The aims are: to determine the origin of the X-ray emission in the X-ray selected narrow emission line galaxy IRAS 16007+8137; to measure the luminosities of different spectral components; and to relate these properties to the many higher redshift NELGs XMM will detect serendipitously. The primary measurements are high signal-noise EPIC spectra. The selected NELG has one of the highest X-ray luminosities in the EMSS & RASS samples but no optical broad lines, despite sensitive searches.

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.
