Description Our previous X-ray observations have provided some of the most direct evidence so far for the galaxy-scale feedback role of AGN jets. However, until recently only a small number of galaxy-scale jets were known. With the new LOFAR Two Metre Sky Survey Data Release 1, we have been able for the first time to build a representative sample of galaxy-scale jets. Here we propose XMM-Newton observations of four galaxy-scale jets from this sample, two of which have spiral host galaxies, and all of which are predicted to be strongly over-pressured with respect to their environments. We aim to detect shock-heated gas and directly measure the cumulative energy deposition of these jets into their galaxy ISM, and therefore obtain the first population-wide view of galaxy-scale jet 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.
