Description We propose to obtain one 33 ksec and two 18 ksec EPIC images of the triggered star forming regions (SFRs), CG30-31-38 and CG4-6-SA101. These SFRs represent a different star forming environment compared to well known SFRs, such as Orion or Taurus. The molecular clouds are evaporating due to the radiation from high mass stars that are not as close as O stars in Orion, but at moderate distances (tens to 100 pc). Although we have sampled a group of PMS stars from our previous ROSAT-HRI imaging, optical, IR photometry, and spectroscopy, we are most likely seeing only the tip of a larger PMS population yet to be discovered. These proposed EPIC images will result into more complete census of PMS stars, providing a valuable data set to study different environments of triggered star formation.

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.
