Title PG 0804+761: Investigation of a blue outlier outflow

Author Mr Rob Detmers
Description We propose to observe the "blue outlier" AGN PG 0804+761 for 100,ks with RGS to obtain detailed information on the outflow and further investigate the connection between "blue outliers (blueshifted [ion{O},{III}] emission)" and powerful outflows. Through this observation we will obtain accurate outflow velocities and the ionization structure of the outflow, which allows us to test a scenario where the blueshifted emission lines are connected to a high velocity outflow.

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.
