Description We propose to observe two supernova remnants in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), SNR 0534-69.9 and DEM L 316A, thereby completing the sample of known Type Ia remnants in the LMC observed by XMM-Newton. Our goal is to use the X-ray spectra to measure physical conditions in these SNRs. A detailed analysis of the emission from these objects also provides valuable information on their chemical structure, which is linked to the explosion mechanism. We will compare the observed X-ray spectra with spectra calculated from hydrodynamical models. As a sample, the LMC Type Ia remnants will allow us to constrain the parameters of thermonuclear explosion scenarios.

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.
