Description We propose XMM-Newton observations of the radio- and gamma-ray loud narrow line Seyfert 1 (RL-NLS1) galaxy PKS2004-447 as part of a five-month multiwavelength monitoring program. We will pin down the X-ray continuum model with two deep XMM-Newton observations and use monthly Swift ToO observations to monitor the X-ray light curve of the X-Ray spectrum between the two deep exposures. Together with guaranteed simultaneous radio and gamma-ray data from the TANAMI program and Fermi-LAT, these observations will yield a dynamic SED for a key object from a new type of high-energy emitting extragalactic objects. PKS2004-447 is one out of only a handful of gamma-bright RL-NLS1 galaxies and plays a key role in this elusive sample because it shows intruiging optical, X-ray, and radio properties.

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.
