Description We ask for 3 blocks of 50 ks each to observe in Triggered Observation mode up to 3 blazars, conditional to stringent and well defined triggering criteria based on optical brightening or X-ray brightening or detection in the TeV band. The XMM-Newton satellite, with its high throughput and good spectral resolution, is crucial for determining the spectral distribution and its time evolution for blazars in a flaring state, and thus for constraining any emission 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.
