Description We propose an X-ray survey of the Taurus Molecular Cloud (TMC) as an important element of a comprehensive investigation of this prototypical site of star formation. This project breaks new ground by combining several large surveys: The XMM-Newton survey will be accompanied by deep optical and NIR surveys conducted at CFHT and millimeter CO surveys underway at Nagoya-Japan, thus addressing many facets of the physics of star and planet formation. The TMC is the nearest (140 pc) extensively star-forming region, representative of the isolated-nonclustered mode of star formation. It covers all critical evolutionary stages r^ant for the formation of stars, brown dwarfs (BD), and planets that will be studied in this combined survey.

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.
