Title Snap-Shot Survey of Supernova Remnants with Plerionic Components

Author European Space Agency
Description Supernova Remnants of center-filled and composite types often host young,
energetic pulsars emitting strong relativistic winds. XMM-Newton and Chandra
observations of such SNRs have already resulted in a number of pulsar and
pulsar-wind nebula (PWN) discoveries. We propose to observe the remaining
plerionic remnants located within a distance of 7 kpc. The SNRs were selected
based on their radio morphologies and serendipitous ROSAT or ASCA data. This
survey will substantially expand the sample of PNWe and pulsars observed in
X-rays and help to establish the properties of the overall population.

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.
