Description The Orion region provides the nearest example of a giant molecular cloud where both low and high-mass stars are actively forming. One of the most spectacular star-forming regions in Orion is the embedded IR cluster near the reflection nebula NGC 2071. It contains more than 100 IR sources but is so far unstudied in X-rays. A dense subgroup of a dozen IR sources designated NGC 2071-IR shows a dazzling array of activity including a powerful bipolar outflow, radio jets, rings and disks, masers and ultracompact HII regions around massive YSOs, HH objects, and T Tauri stars. We propose to undertake the first sensitive X-ray study of NGC 2071 to obtain an X-ray census of the IR cluster and search for X-rays from massive protostars and shocked outflows in the NGC 2071-IR subgroup.

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.
