Author Dr Poonam Chandra
Description Supernova (SN) 2010jl is a bright Type IIn SN shown to have X-ray emission early on. Our three {it Chandra} ACIS-S observations taken at 58 days, one year and 20 months after the SN discovery show dramatically different spectra and strong evolution of the X-ray absorption. The spectra indicate high temperatures and high absorbing column densities. This is the first time an external circumstellar X-ray absorption has been clearly observed in a SN, giving us a rare opportunity to follow the evolution of the external column density and obtain unique information on circumstellar structure and the shock interaction. In this proposal we request 80 ks of XMM-Newton EPIC-PN and MOS observations of SN 2010jl at two epochs.

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.
