|Title||The SNR G160.9+2.6 blast wave interaction with the star forming region Sh-219|
|Author||Dr Patrick Kavanagh|
|Description||As core collapse supernovae often occur close to their parent molecular clouds, it is expected that interactions between core collapse supernova remnants (SNRs) and young stellar objects (YSOs) forming in those clouds are common. To date virgul40 SNR-molecular cloud associations have been confirmed. SNR shock waves impact the evolution of local YSOs which has implications for star-planet formation. It is important to correctly map the progression of an SNR blast wave through a star-forming region (SFR), assess the impact of the SNR on the SFR, and vice versa. We aim to perform such a study for the case of the SNR G160.9+2.6 interaction with Sh-219.|

|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.
