Description The Seyfert 1 galaxy Zw 229.015 is an anonymous, unstudied AGN near the galactic plane, but by virtue of being in the Kepler field of view it will have the most precise, long-term optical light curve of any AGN ever. As such, the AGN is the ideal candidate for reverberation-echo mapping studies and will be the target of such an investigation in 2011 and 2012. However, there is almost nothing known about the X-ray properties of this AGN: Zw 229 has never been the focus of a targeted observation and has only been detected in the RASS. In AO10 our intention is simply to characterize the X-ray properties and behavior of Zw 229. We propose three observations of Zw 229 over the course of AO10 to measure the object.s X-ray spectrum and determine its long- and short-time scale spectral variability.

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.
