Description We propose to obtain a 45ks X-ray spectrum of SDSSJ2125-0813 - the most luminous radio quiet quasar that shows signs of accretion disk emission in the optical. A short exploratory Chandra observation of this object revealed tentative evidence for an unusually strong, ionized, broad Fe Ka line combined with little or no intrinsic absorption. The proposed XMM-Newton observation will confirm or refute the presence of a relativistic Fe Ka line, the first such line to be detected in a double-peaked emitter. Alternatively, the detection of a strong narrow line will provide a rare example of strong Fe Ka emission in an active galaxy with quasar-like luminosity.

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.
