Description GT- We propose to observe a sample of thermal supernova remnants in the Magellanic Clouds, with the RGS (high resolution spectroscopy) and the EPIC (broad band, high sensitivity spectroscopy, spectro-imaging). Our aim is to observe remnants at a well-known distance in order to test SNR models and qualify statistical studies over larger samples. The XMM RGS offers the opportunity to obtain global spectra at spectral resolution of 100 or so around 1 keV. This is crucial for distinguishing lines in thermal spectra. The XMM EPIC will have the sensitivity to extend the spectral data to high energy and to provide imaging in the lines.

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.
