|Title||X-RAY OBSERVATIONS OF AN OBSCURED QUASAR WITH OUTFLOWS AT PEAK GALAXY FORMATION|
|Author||Dr Nadia Zakamska|
|Description||We discovered a population of powerful L>1e47 erg-s red QSOs at z=2-3 which show unprecedented signatures of fast v>3000 km-s outflows in their [OIII]5007A lines. These objects may be signposts of the a??a??blow-out" phase of quasar feedback onto quasar host galaxy, at the epoch when QSOs may have made the strongest impact on galaxy formation. Here we propose NuStar+XMM observations of one of these objects, a target from our approved JWST Early Release Science program. These data will allow us to determine the physical properties of the corona and the intrinsic accretion luminosity; constrain wind driving mechanisms; and provide a a??a??gold standard" spectrum for studies of the obscured high-z quasar population, which remains the single most elusive key target of X-ray astronomy.|

|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.
