Description We propose a 100 ks XMM observation of the bright, rapidly variable Seyfert 2 galaxy; NGC 7582. The primary aim of the observation is to measure the X-ray variability properties of this Seyfert 2 and to use this to confirm the similarities between NGC 7582 and the narrow-line Seyfert 1 class of AGN (NLS1s). Many of the intrinsic properties of NLS1s are exhibited by NGC 7582, however the link is far from certain. The proposed observation will measure the short time scale power spectral density (PSD) of the X-ray variability in NGC 7582, a break in which will result in the first estimate of the mass of the central black hole in NGC 7582 and confirm the link with NLS1s. This observation will also result in the first high resolution soft X-ray spectrum of NGC 7582.

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.
