Description Massive and ultrafast wide-angled outflows from AGN are one of the proposed feedback mechanisms that may provide the coupling of kinetic energy between quasars and their host galaxies. To further our understanding of the AGNa??s role in this process we propose joint Chandra and XMM observations of the outflow of the z=1.5 AGN HS 0810+2554. The factor of 120 lensing magnification of HS0810 makes this source exceptionally bright compared to other quasars with detected outflows at similar distances. We will also study the short and long-term variability of the X-ray outflow and the correlation of X-ray wind properties to the X-ray and UV spectral properties. The variability and correlation results will provide insight into the acceleration mechanism of the wind.

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.
