Description The Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), with its low foreground absorption and relative proximity, offers the ideal laboratory for the study of a large sample of supernova remnants (SNRs) in detail, both spatially and energetically given the known distance. It is possible to obtain a relatively complete sample of SNRs in the LMC to examine not only the global properties but the subclasses. Toward this goal, we are identifying new SNRs using combined optical, radio, and X-ray data. Here we request XMM-Newton observations of six intriguing SNR candidates which probe different interstellar environments. These objects lend themselves to a study of the relationships between environment and SNR properties in addition to the detailed individual analysis of each object.

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.
