Description In the entire history of X-ray astronomy, only about two dozen core-collapse supernovae (SNe) have been detected at ages of days to years old. Of these, only a handful have been well-followed temporally. Few general trends have emerged, and there is a clear need for better X-ray coverage at ages of ~years. Two SN subclasses stand out as deserving of particular attention, namely, the type Ic SNe, which have been associated with long-duration gamma-ray bursts, and the type IIn SNe, which are very poorly understood but have the highest X-ray luminosities seen in SNe. We propose observations of a number of interesting SNe of these subclasses at ages between one and five years.

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.
