|Title||The hard (2-10 keV), high-latitude XMM-Newton AGN slew survey I|
|Author||Dr Norbert Schartel|
|Description||XMM-Newton slew data allow us to establish the deepest, complete, hard (2-10keV) X-ray selected, flux limited sample of X-ray sources which is dominated by AGN for high latitudes. The proposed follow-up observations of slew sources offer an unique opportunity to establish an overview of the spectral distribution of a complete hard X-ray selected sample of (nearby) AGNs and especially will allow to search for rare object classes and to determine the fraction of intrinsically absorbed sources.|

|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.
