Description During a scan of the Galactic plane performed in 2004, H.E.S.S. (the currently most sensitive TeV telescope) has discovered a new class of so far unidentified TeV gamma-ray sources. We propose to use XMM to perform follow-up observations on a set of four of these sources, which have plausible associations with known Supernova remnants. The large sensitivity of XMM and its energy range up to 15 keV are required to provide a detailed view of the morphology of the surroundings of the TeV sources. This will allow us either to prove that the spatial coincidences of the gamma-ray sources and the Supernova remnants are of physical origin, or else to discover and identify the yet unknown counterparts of the TeV sources.

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.
