|Title||HIGH-RESOLUTION X-RAY AND UV SPECTROSCOPY OF THE SEYFERT 1 GALAXY NGC7469|
|Author||Mr ALEXANDER BLUSTIN|
|Description||We propose a long (150 ks) XMM-Newton observation of the Seyfert 1 galaxy NGC7469, to be carried out simultaneously with FUSE UV spectroscopy. We will investigate the connection between the X-ray and UV warm absorber-emitters in this object. A short XMM-Newton observation showed that at least one of the multiple phases of the X-ray warm absorber can be identified with a UV absorber phase. A fuller understanding of this system can only be achieved with a better signal-to-noise RGS spectrum. By understanding the ionisation and velocity structure of the outflow, we can determine its mass and kinetic luminosity, which are necessary for understanding the influence of outflows on the evolution of AGN, their host galaxies, and the surrounding intergalactic medium.|

|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.
