Description The Mouse and SNR 359.1-0.5 are both unique objects in the Galactic Center region. The Mouse is a radio object located only 0.2 degree away from SNR 359.1-0.5. Its morphology suggests that the Mouse is associated with a neutron star moving with high speed. SNRvirgul359.1 - 0.5 is an SNR expanding into a dense ambient medium with 1e3 cm-3, and the explosion energy was as large as 1e53 ergs, indicating this SNR is a remnant of a hypernova. With EPIC-XMM, we here investigate spatial, spectral and temporal X-ray properties of The Mouse and SNRvirgul359.1 - 0.5, which allow us to address the origins and the enigmatic nature of them.

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.
