Description The proposed observation of seven obscured AGN are necessary to obtain a complete and uniform coverage of the X-ray emission for the sample of Seyfert-2 galaxies from the 12micron galaxy sample (12MGS). Coupled with the broad-band X-ray observations available for the remaining 12MGS AGN, the proposed observations will allow us to investigate the column density distribution at low redshift for a complete and unbiased AGN sample (because of its mid-IR selection) and to connect the accretion properties to those of the hosts by exploiting the unique multi-band characterization and coverage of the proposed sample.

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.
