Description We propose to observe two Galactic supernova remnants (SNRs) G94.0+1.0 and G96.0+2.0 which have so far not been characterized in X-rays. We plan to search for possible central neutron stars (NS) associated with the remnants, i.e. to increase the small but diverse class of isolated NSs associated with SNRs, and to perform the first morphological and spectral study of the remnants in X-rays. The target SNRs are located relatively far from the Galactic center resulting in low absorption, their size does not exceed the XMM-Newton FoV and distance estimates exist for both remnants making them ideal targets for the proposed studies.

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.
