Title NGC 1052: the Key to Explore the Disk-Jet Connection in AGN


DOI https://doi.org/10.5270/esa-qrxayqs
Author Mr Matthias Kadler
Description The LINER NGC1052 is the first radio-loud AGN exhibiting both, a bright compact radio jet and a relativistically broadened variable iron line. This provides a unique direct method to probe the disk-jet interaction. As part of a multi-mission monitoring program of NGC1052, we propose XMM-Newton triggered observations to determine its X-ray iron-line variability and to investigate the relation between dynamical processes in the accretion disk and imminent jet-production events. Our goals are to determine, ultimately, what leads supermassive black holes to launch powerful relativistic jets and what makes an AGN radio loud.

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.
