Description The..M(SMBH)-sigma relation. indicates that a link between the central black-hole and the hosting galaxies acted during the cosmic time. With the discovery in X-rays of the ultra-fast outflows in nearby AGN, we have probably probed one of the ingredients needed to build-up this ..feedback. mechanism. At high-z, however, such measurements are few. We must fill this observational gap to test this scenario, since, to be effective, feedback had to work at its maximum at redshifts were the starburst and accretion onto SMBH were at their most. We propose to continue a program already proved to be succesful in pursuing this goal and that uses gravitational lenses as parts of our telescope to fill this observational gap and to point the high-z QSO Q2237+030 and HE0435-1223

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.
