Description We propose to obtain the first complete X-ray CCD image of the newly discovered supernova remnant (SNR) G53.41+0.03. The spectral image study of this rare and relatively young (1000 8000 yr) SNR will allow us to: i) better constraint the element abundances, which are crucial for pinpointing the SNR origin; ii) significantly improve the age estimation by better measuring the plasma parameters; iii) search for active acceleration sites producing synchrotron radiation and iv) for a compact object which could be either a normal pulsar, CCO or a magnetar. In addition we will compare the X-ray morphology to our previous radio study.

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.
