Title Spectral analysis of the jet in the Seyfert 2 Galaxy NGC 6217 with XMM-Newton


DOI 10.5270/esa-2kpnsi5
Author Dr Wolfgang Pietsch
Description The nuclear starburst, flat spectrum spiral NGC6217 offers the possibility to resolve spectrally with XMM-Newton its one-sided jet-like radio and X-ray filament, extending out to 2.7. (18.8 kpc) in the SW of the galaxy. According to ROSAT observations, the jet.s X-ray spectrum seems to be harder than that of NGC6217 and its luminosity in the 0.5-2.0 keV band ~1.7 10E39 erg-s. NGC6217 stands out as the fourth nearest jet galaxy known. Here, we propose a deep XMM-Newton observation of this extraordinary source to resolve the jet from the emission of the galaxy and do a detailed spectral investigation of the jet.

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.
