Description GT_ SN 1006 was shown by ASCA-SIS to be of a composite nature, with non-thermal emission coming from the bright limbs and fainter thermal emission coming from the center and the other sides. This is the best example of shock acceleration of cosmic-rays (supernova remnants are thought to be the main sites of cosmic-ray acceleration). XMM has about 10 times better spatial resolution than ASCA, and will provide much crisper images. We propose to map SN 1006 in four pointings (the remnant is 30. in diameter). With 5 ks pointings we expect about 500 EPIC cts-arcmin2 in the faintest areas (10 times that in the bright limbs).

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.
