Description It is proposed to obtain the first XMM-Newton observation of the Broad Line Radio Galaxies 3C382. This object is characterised by warm absorption in the soft X-ray spectrum and a controversial Fe line the origin of which is still largely unknown. In earlier data it appears to be extremely broad (ASCA), possibly relativistically broadened, while it is reported unresolved and consistent with an origin in distant reflection in BeppoSAX data. The capabilities of XMM-Newton will be fully exploited. It will be possible to study in detail the FevirgulK line profile and the jet contribution to the soft X-ray spectrum using a high S-N pn spectrum and it will be possible to elucidate the presence of X-ray absorption thanks to the RGS high resolution data.

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.
