|Title||A search for SN ejecta fragments in a molecular cloud interacting with IC443|
|Author||Dr Fabrizio Bocchino|
|Description||IC443 has been known for a long time as a classical thermal shell. Recently, it has been discovered that it is also a strong source of non-thermal X-ray and gamma-ray radiation. Despite much work has been done which has helped us to better understand this object (detection of an EGRET and BeppoSAX-PDS source, detection of a plerion nebula, detection of a set of hard point sources localized in the region of interaction with a molecular cloud) several issue remains open. With this proposal, we aim to solve one of these issues, the longstanding problem of the nature of the double hard X-ray source 1SAX J0618.0+2227.|

|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.
