Description We propose to observe up to 3 AGN in exceptionally high states for 100 ks each with XMM, to study efficiently both their gaseous nuclear environment as well as intervening high ionization metal absorption systems. The observations will be triggered by the XTE-ASM and require rapid response times. This observing strategy will guarantee high quality spectra containing at least 1 million counts in the first orders of the RGS. Given the unique high quality scientific rewards of this program, we propose that the data be made immediately public to ensure their widest utilization.

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.
