|Title||NUSTAR-XMM MONITORING OF THE BROAD-LINE RADIO GALAXY 3C 382|
|Author||Mr FRANCESCO URSINI|
|Description||We propose a joint NuSTAR-XMM monitoring of the broad-line radio galaxy (BLRG) 3C 382, consisting of 5x20 ks observations spaced by 10-15 days. 3C 382 is an ideal radio-loud source to obtain high sensitivity measurements over a broad (UV-hard X-rays) high-energy range, which will allow us to: 1) study the UV-X-ray spectrum of a BLRG with unprecedented accuracy and test physically motivated Comptonization models, 2) understand the origin of the puzzling reflection component, and 3) investigate the nature of the soft X-ray excess. These observations will allow for a direct comparison with radio-quiet Seyfert 1s, in particular with a similar, successful NuSTAR-XMM monitoring of NGC 4593.|

|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.
