Description We propose to observe three supernova remnants in the Magellanic clouds, i.e. DEM L 71, IKT 6 & IKT 23. The RGS spectra will allow us to study the emission lines from single ions. In particular, the He-like series of O & Ne (in the case of IKT 23) show peculiar ratios. The study of the He-like ratios will enable us to investigate largely unaccounted for phenomena, such as resonance scattering, recombination and charge transfer which affects line shapes and production.

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.
