Description GT - The X-ray spectra of Seyfert II galaxies are rich in discrete emission features produced in a wide variety of physical conditions. Reprocessed emission may originate from the active nucleus while the host galaxy may emit thermal emission from starburst regions that may or may not be coupled with nuclear activity. We plan to observe NGC 1068, the brightest in its class, to obtain well-exposed, high resolution spectra. We will be able to distinguish the emission mechanisms and their relative flux contributions to constrain the physical conditions and structure of the circumnuclear environment.

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.
