|Title||Supernova Remnant Evolving in Wind-Blown Bubbles: A Case Study of Kes 27|
|Author||Dr Jiangtao Li|
|Description||Mixed-morphology (MM) SNRs represent SN explosion in wind-blown bubbles. They are thus good places to study the interaction between massive stellar winds, SNRs, and the surrounding ISM. We propose a 50ks XMM-Newton observation of a peculiar MM SNR, Kes 27. We will map out the spectral parameters in tessellated meshes and construct EW maps of some emission lines with our newly developed spatially-resolved spectroscopy method. These analyses will help us to understand the unusual properties of this MM SNR, such as the X-ray bright outer shell, shell-like interior, and strong NE-SW asymmetry in morphology. We will also search for evidence of over-ionization state plasma and coherent X-ray features associated with the shell of the HI cavity.|

|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.
