|Title||X-Ray Supernovae in Nearby Galaxies|

|Description||GT- In this proposal we address various questions related to the X-ray emission processes of type II SNe in nearby spiral galaxies at different stages of their evolution. The programmatic search for X-ray emission from young type II SNe in nearby galaxies will lead to a detailed study of the X-ray turn-on phase of SNe and the long-term X-ray lightcurve behavior. The expected high-quality X-ray spectra of young SNe will give us the opportunity to determine with unprecedented accuracy the physical conditions of the ejecta and the ambient ISM in terms of the shock-reverse-shock model.|

|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.
