|Description||The proposed program is designed to provide a unique observational framework to test the validity of physical models for Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) outflows, and to ultimately understand their impact into their host galaxies. The immediate goals of this 1.68 Ms large program are to 1) obtain a statistically sound measure of the duty cycle and physical parameters of ultra-fast outflows (UFOs) in Quasars of typical L* luminosities (logLvirgul45-46 erg-s); 2) assess the relation of UFOs and ionised outflows observed at host-galaxy scales; 3) investigate the relation between UFOs and the warmer-ionised and cold gas phases observed at soft X-ray energies.|

|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.
