Description Despite a large fraction of the SNR Puppis A having been observed in X-rays, there is a distinct scarcity of data in the southern extent of the remnant. To date, the highest quality X-ray exposures of the South are those of the XMM-Newton Slew Survey, which confirm the existence of X-ray emission associated with the SNR. Moreover, high sensitivity radio data show that the South is a region of high interest due to its likely interaction with neighbouring clouds. This proposal aims towards a completion of our view of Puppis A through the first deep X-ray observation of the S and SW extent of the remnant.

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.
