Description We propose repeated observations with XMM-Newton of the bright Seyfert galaxy
NGC 5506 which exhibits a complex Fe line emission profile, with at least two
components, as revealed by previous XMM-Newton AO-1 observations. The source is
also known to be highly variable on timescales of few days from extensive RXTE
monitoring. The main goal of the proposed observations is to assess the location
and physical state of the emitting media by measuring their profiles and EWs in
different intensity states of the continuum. Our strategy will be to perform 4
logarithmically spaced observations, sampling time scales from a few days to a
month.

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.
