Description Supernova remnants (SNRs) with unusual morphologies indicate complicated interactions with their surroundings, demonstrating the wide variety of conditions into which supernovae explode. G350.1-0.3 is a long-overlooked radio and X-ray source with a bizarre morphology, which we argue is a very young and luminous SNR expanding into dense ambient gas. We here propose imaging and spectroscopic observations of G350.1-0.3 with XMM, through which we can probe the physical conditions in this SNR and begin to understand its interaction with its surroundings.

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.
