Description We propose XMM-Newton observations of 3 fields of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) with stellar populations ~100-500 Myr old. These observations were part of an AO4 program to study the X-ray Binaries (XRBs) of 10 to 500 Myr old stellar populations down to Lx~2.5e33 erg-s. Two young fields were successfully observed, while the proposed (older) fields were affected by radiation or not observed. Based on X-ray spectra and timing analysis we will identify X-ray binary pulsars down to spin periods less than 10s. With these results we will study the connection between stellar and XRB populations and complement Chandra and XMM-Newton observations of the SMC and other galaxies where faint XRBs cannot be observed.

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.
