Description We propose a 89 ks EPIC observation of the outskirts (out to 30 kpc from the center) of the nearby bright starburst galaxy, NGC 253. Our goal is to detect the extended superwind emission at large radii. We will constrain the density and temperature profiles of the wind emission and compare them with the theoretical models. We will also search for extended clumpy features smilier to the Northern Cap in M82. These data can place important constraints on how starburst galaxies heat and enrich their environments.

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.
