Description We propose to observed with XMM-Newton EPIC PN the youngest sites of high mass star formation. Recent ASCA observations suggest, that the earliest evolutionary states of massive star formation are associated with hard X-ray emission. A systematic proof of this finding can only come from the superior sensitivity of XMM-Newton. The observations will allow us to identify the protostellar clusters and to identify the origin of the X-ray emission, using the intrinsic energy resolution of the detectors. The energy production mechanism is up to now entirely unexplored. The X-ray observations will also allow us to study the imprint of X-rays on star formation and chemistry within dense molecular cores.

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.
