Title New Candidates for Supernova Remnants in the Large Magellanic Cloud


DOI 10.5270/esa-bif5thv
Author Dr Manami Sasaki
Description We propose observations of nine NEW candidates for SNRs in the LMC. These sources were detected in ROSAT data and classified as candidates for thermal SNRs based on their X-ray properties and radio counterparts. Using EPICs as the primary instruments we will detect emission lines of ionized atoms characteristic of thermal SNRs and determine the spatial extent. The high sensitivity of XMM-Newton will allow to detect SNRs that are X-ray faint either because of their age or the ambient medium and enlarge the sample of known SNRs to lower brightness levels. We will thus be able to construct a more complete X-ray luminosity function of SNRs in the LMC and will obtain information about typical abundances, densities, and initial supernova energies in the LMC.

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.
