Description AGN mass outflows inject enormous amounts of matter and energy into the interstellar medium of the host galaxy. Their location, structure, and importance as contributors to cosmic feedback processes are not yet fully understood. We propose to observe the Seyfert 1 galaxy NGC 985 with XMM-Newton for 240 ks using RGS as the prime instrument in order to accurately characterize the different ionized phases and kinematic components of the warm absorber. Together with HST-COS we will study the connection between the X-ray and UV absorbers and put stringent limits on the location of these winds in the context of the unification model of AGN.

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.
