Description We propose to obtain the first high resolution X-ray spectra of the fastest rotating stars outside of accreting systems: the secondaries of pre-cataclysmic variables that are thought to have undergone common envelope evolution. The resulting data will: (1) Provide C and N abundances with which to perform a definitive test of common envelope evolution theory for pre-cataclysmic binaries; (2) Probe the phenomenon of ''supersaturation.. and coronal morphology, temperature structure and abundances at rotation rates a factor of two greater than studied to date. This coronal activity is responsible for the angular momentum loss that ultimately leads to Roche lobe overflow and accretion.

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.
