Description We propose a 15 ks observation of the LINER galaxy NGC 1052. Our goal is to provide a clean test of the ..Advection-Dominated Accretion Flow. model of low-accretion rate accretion. This can be accomplished by measuring the profile of the Fe Kalpha line---if it is relativistically broad, the disk is ..normal. all the way in to its innermost rings; a significantly narrower line would be consistent with the predictions of the ADAF model.

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.
