Abstract

We report the discovery of X-ray broad absorption lines (BALs) from the BALQSO APM 08279+5255 originating from material moving at relativistic velocities with respect to the central source. The large flux magnification by a factor of ∼ 100 provided by the gravitational lens effect combined with the large redshift (z = 3.91) of the quasar have facilitated… (More)
