14 Sgr B2: giant molecular cloud near G.C. Emitting strong Fe-K fluorescence (6.4 keV) line. Interpreted to trace a past X-ray activity of Sgr A*. “Compton shoulder” Watanabe et al. 2003 Sunyaev & Churazov 1998 Koyama et al. simulation each shifted x 1 / 20 Time sequence after a flash

15 MCG-6-30-15 XMM Vaughan & Fabian 2004 Broad Fe K-line of AGN IC 4329A Chandra HETG McKernan & Yaqoob Broad red wing of Fe-line seen from several Sy1 with ASCA

16 Photoionized Plasmas in Sy2 simulation Resolving UTA of Photoionized Absorber NGC 1068 simulation

17 Iron K line feature from Sy II Class A NGC 4151(50ks) Sy 1.9 Absorption features Variable Broad + Narrow Fe-K lines Double Gaussian T. Yaqoob Separation of narrow lines

18 Current status of Astro-E2 Integration & tests (June-December, 2004) All tests have been completed successfully. SA is ready for launch by the end December 2004. Launch schedule Launch originally scheduled in Feb. 2005 is delayed because H-IIa launch is given priority. Earliest window will probably be in June 2005.

19 Observing time allocation AO-1… J = 3.9 Msec, ESA = 0.7 Msec SWG: Science Working Group, GO: Guest observer
