|Title||XMM-Newton observations of two Compton thick candidates|
|Author||Dr Valentina La Parola|
|Description||We propose the observation of two Compton thick candidates selected within the extragalactic sources of the Second Palermo BAT Catalogue, according to their position in a N_H vs softness ratio (F[2-10 keV]-F[20-100] keV) plot. We aim at their full spectral characterization through broad-band (0.2-150 keV) high quality spectroscopy, in order to confirm their Compton thick nature.|

|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.
