The SUBWAYS project (acronym for “Supermassive Black Holes Winds in the X-rays”) will use XMM-Newton during AO18 for more than 18 days (1.58 Ms), to observe a sample of ~20 quasars in the relatively close by Universe (z~0.2).

Artistic view of multiphase AGN-driven winds highlighting the different phases and scales that are involved in the outflow. The wind propagates from the central engine (< 1 pc; a), through the surrounding ISM (1 pc–1 kpc; b), out to the boundaries of the host galaxy (> 10 kpc; c). SUBWAYS will investigate the outflow in its launching phase, when the gas is highly ionized, and the presence of fast moving material can be revealed in X-rays.
