Description We propose a 20-ksec observation of the Supernova Remnant G335.2+0.1. The principal aim of the observation is to detect thermal radiation and use it to establish the hydrodynamic parameters and evolutionary state of the remnant. The secondary aim is to detect possible non-thermal radiation to constrain the magnetic field at the shock and the efficiency of cosmic-ray acceleration in the object. The dedicated textit{XMM-Newton} exposure of G335.2+0.1 would provide us with vital X-ray data needed to understand the distribution of cosmic rays in the system and the relation between G335.2+0.1 and the TeV-band source HESS J1626-490 that is coincident with a nearby molecular cloud.

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.
