Description We propose simultaneous NuSTAR (80 ksec) & XMM-Newton (60 ksec) observations of IRASF05054+1718, a local (z = 0.0175) Seyfert 2 galaxy, which hosts a powerful disk wind and where there is evidence of quenching of star formation. In this source, Swift data suggested the presence of a powerful and high-velocity (vout a?? 0.1 c) wind, most likely launched within 100Rg . A short NuSTAR observation confirms the presence of such a wind, but with a much higher velocity (vout a?? 0.2 c). Neither of the two previous observations have the statistical quality needed to fully investigate the physical properties of this wind. Our aim here is to confirm the disk wind at a higher statistical significance.

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.
