Description We propose to obtain contemporaneous high resolution spectroscopy of the Narrow Line Seyfert 1 Galaxy Mrk 335 with triggered XMM-Newton-RGS (130 ks) and HST-COS (7 orbits) observations with the aim of studying the properties of the ionized outflow that has recently been discovered in archival data. XMM-RGS spectra obtained during an intermediate flux state (June 2009) revelead the presence of multi-component ionized gas outflowing at virgul5000 km-s. In HST-COS data taken a few months later (Oct 2009-Feb 2010) we found evidence for smooth, broad and weak CIV absorption. The global behavior of the gas in both bands can be explained by variation of the covering factor and-or column density, possibly due to transverse motion of absorbing clouds at Broad Line Region scale.

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.
