Abstract: One of the areas where Chandra's high spatial resolution has had a tremendous impact is on studies of the supernova remnants (SNRs) in the Magellanic Clouds. In this presentation I will talk about new results in two broad areas of supernova remnant research, shock physics and nucleosynthesis, using Chandra observations of remnants in the LMC. If time permits I will also discuss very recent results on SNR N63A in which we "X-ray" an interstellar cloud that lies in front of a portion of the remnant.
