Paper Abstract

We present preliminary results from observations of supernova remnants by the Chandra X-ray Observatory. The data include imaging spectroscopy from objects observed with both GTO and GO data. The high spatial resolution of Chandra is revealing a wealth of small-scale structure in these remnants. Specifically, we have resolved the remnant of SN1987A, and have discovered fine-scale structure in N103B and G292.0+1.8.
