Description Recent Herschel observations have identified powerful large-scale molecular outflows in ultraluminous infrared galaxies, indicating that AGN feedback can indeed influence star formation and galaxy evolution. Theoretical models describing the formation of such large-scale outflows require a putative inner AGN accretion disk wind. We found the first evidence of such a wind in IRASF11119+3257, in the form of blue-shifted Fe XXV-XXVI absorption lines with velocity 0.25c. However, just one object does not allow to establish the validity of such mechanism. Here, we request simultaneous 150ks NuSTAR and 90ks XMM-Newton observations of the next most promising ULIRG, IRASF05189-2524, to characterize its disk wind and conclusively establish the mechanism of quasar mode feedback.

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.
