|Title||NGC 1052: the Key to Explore the Disk-Jet Connection in AGN|
|Author||Mr Matthias Kadler|
|Description||The LINER NGC1052 is the first radio-loud AGN exhibiting both, a bright compact radio jet and a relativistically broadened variable iron line. This provides a unique direct method to probe the disk-jet interaction. As part of a multi-mission monitoring program of NGC1052, we propose XMM-Newton triggered observations to determine its X-ray iron-line variability and to investigate the relation between dynamical processes in the accretion disk and imminent jet-production events. Our goals are to determine, ultimately, what leads supermassive black holes to launch powerful relativistic jets and what makes an AGN radio loud.|

|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.
