|Description||We request MAGIC observations to provide sensitive VHE coverage for the multi-instrument campaigns in2021-2022. These MAGIC observations are needed to characterise with accuracy the high-energy bump and its temporal evolution with simultaneous coverage for the low-energy bump. This experimental work allows addressing fundamental questions on how Mrk421 and Mrk501 function, which may be generalized to other blazars that are more difficult to study because they are weaker or located further away. The multi-year MAGIC data we are collecting provide unprecedented VHE coverage with high sensitivity and low energy threshold and, together with the related MWL data (including striclty simultaneous observations),will become one of the MAGIC legacy products.|

|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.
