Title IGR J14488--4008 and IGR J17488--2338: two X-ray absorbed BLRG

Description We propose to observe with XMM-Newton two radio galaxies, IGR J14488-4008 and IGR J17488-2338, recently discovered by INTEGRAL and for which limited spectral information is available below 10 keV. In particular, we aim at assessing the nature of absorption which is at odds with their optical classification as broad line AGN and to probe the presence of reflection features, such as the iron line and Compton reflection hump. Based on our past experience and simulations, we estimate that an exposure of 20 ks for each source is sufficient to reach the scientific goals of this proposal.

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.
