|Title||New Candidates for Supernova Remnantsin the Large Magellanic Cloud|
|Author||Prof Manami Sasaki|
|Description||We propose observations of new candidates for X-ray supernova remnants (SNRs) in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Building on a successful campaign to observe candidates with ROSAT detections, we now propose observations of the lowest X-ray surface brightness SNR candidates which were found in multi-wavenlength observations and confirmed in the newest eROSITA data. Owing to the high sensitivity ofXMM-Newton we will be able to confirm SNRs at the faintest end of the X-ray luminosity function(XLF) and study their plasma properties and age, aswell as the ambient interstellar 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.
