|Title||Identifying Progenitors of Two Peculiar SNRs in the LMC and SMC with the RGS|
|Author||Dr Hiroyuki Uchida|
|Description||Last few years, we have presented various results of high-resolution spectroscopies of SNRs with the RGS. Although a large amount of the archival data over the past twenty years is available and most of the notable SNRs have been observed with the RGS, several intriguing remnants are still not observed. A recent comprehensive systematic analysis of SNRs revealed that a clear correlation between their morphologies and supernova types. We, however, found two outliers in the correlation diagram: 0548-70.4 and 0104-72.3, which are minor LMC-SMC SNRs but have anomalous abundance pattern and peculiar morphologies. We thus propose to observe these SNRs with the RGS to give a conclusive result on their origin and nature.|

|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.
