Description We propose to observe two regions in the Vela supernova remnant shell, which, together with an EPIC GT observation we have already analyzed, will allow us to sample at high spatial resolution (less then 0.1 pc) the downstream plasma from the main shock rim directly interacting with the undisturbed ISM to an inner region, located ~7 pc toward the SNR center. The selected regions contains prototypical representations of shock-cloud interactions, and they are therefore ideal candidates for the assessment of the nature of the X-ray emission in this (and other) middle-aged supernova remnant shells.

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.
