Description We request a 20 ksec XMM-Newton observation of a gamma-ray luminous quasar, NVSS J163547+362930 (z = 3.62). It is one of the five blazars detected by Fermi-LAT beyond z = 3.1 and not present in earlier gamma-ray catalogs. However, this source has no previous X-ray spectral measurements. The X-ray observations will measure the onset of the inverse Compton emission which is expected to be very hard. This will enables us to accurately determine the associated jet power and the particle population responsible for the observed emission.

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.
