Description We propose to finish the entire mapping of the supernova remnant RX J1713.7-3946 within 4 pointings of 20 ks to study one of the most fascinating cosmic-ray accelerators known today. Our objectives are 1) to obtain the full and most detailed description of the morphology of the X-ray synchrotron emission 2) to map the variations of the spectral index and the X-ray absorption 3) to search for spatial correlations with the TeV gamma-ray emission recently imaged with the HESS Cerenkov telescopes 4) to compare how particle acceleration proceeds when the SNR is interacting with molecular clouds or with a tenuous ambient medium

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.
