Description We propose to obtain a deep exposure (150 ks) of the radio-loud NLS1 galaxy IRAS17020+4544. This is a relatively unexplored source that presents peculiar characteristics. Archival X-ray data show a multicomponent warm absorber in the soft X-ray spectrum and spectral complexity in the Fe K band, suggesting absorption in highly ionized Iron. Recent VLBA observations revealed a compact radio structure and a well defined jet component. Given the known radio and X-ray properties of the source, this target represents one of the best candidate for: 1) studying the properties of outflowing gas in one of the rare radio loud sources where this phenomenon is detected and 2) studying the effect of ionized absorption in the Fe K band.

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.
