Title Tracing the evolution of BH winds through the intermediate states

Description Black hole transients (BHT) are the only class of black holes (BH) which samples
a wide range of accretion rates and accretion states during their month to year
long outbursts. BHT classically show two types of outflows: collimated
radio-jets ubiquitous during the canonical hard state and highly ionised X-ray
winds during the soft state. We propose a combined XMM+NuSTAR monitoring
campaign of an high inclination BHT, to shed light on the evolution of the wind
while the source transits through the intermediate states.

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.
