Description We request simultaneous Chandra (100 ks) and XMM-Newton (50 ks) observation of NGC 2110. The combined data will allow us to tackle key issues which cannot be broached using either dataset alone. The primary goal of deconvolving the broad and narrow components of the Fe Ka line requires simultaneous observation by Chandra and XMM, as recent data have indicated narrow components of Fe Ka to vary. Thus, only simultaneous data will allow us to resolve the controversy regarding the diskline in type 2 AGN. The proposed data will also allow tight constraints on the absorbing gas.

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.
