[U02-04] NASA-JAXA Heliophysics Observation Partnerships

★Invited papers

*Steven W Clarke1 (1.NASA Headquarters)

NASA and JAXA have been successful partners in unlocking the mysteries of the
universe, including those related to our own star, the Sun, and it’s effects on our
solar system. Through collaborations on previous space-based observations, such as
Geotail, Hinode, and last summer’s sounding rocket launch of CLASP, NASA and JAXA have enabled the heliophysics science community to obtain critical observational data for over 20 years. These data have helped to answer many compelling science questions and initiate additional ones. NASA and JAXA continue to investigate future opportunities to further heliophysics science. This long-standing partnership between NASA and JAXA will continue to provide significant benefits to the global heliophysics science community and more broadly, society as a whole.
