Bring together people that led/lead past/present experiments; discuss potential ideas for new experiments; identify big scientific questions that could be answered with active experiments, identify gaps.
is a rich history of space active experiments dating back to the 1960s. These
experiments began early in the space age, where it became clear that the space
environment was filled with plasma and could be rather harsh to astronauts and
infrastructure. Active space experiments have had the triple goal of (1)
probing basic plasma physics phenomena, (2) elucidating aspects of
magnetospheric and ionospheric physics, and (3) understanding how to control
the effects of the environment on space assets. Bombs, beams, heaters,
releases, chemical dumps, plasma plumes, tethers, antennas, voltages are
examples of active experiments spanning several decades of research. More
recently, further interest towards active experiments in space has arisen, as
called for in the 2012 Decadal Survey of the National Research Council, driven
by important scientific applications such as magnetosphere/ionosphere coupling
or radiation belt remediation.
workshop aims at bringing together researchers interested in space-based active
experiments, including experts from past and present missions, with a focus
towards the future and on what fundamental scientific questions and
applications could be tackled by new active experiments. The workshop seeks
contributions on space-based active experiments conducted with waves and/or
particles, targeting the following physics processes:
plasmas and beams;
Contributions on new technological
developments that could enable future missions are also encouraged.
the goals of the workshop are:
workshop will comprise tutorial, invited and contributed talks as well as
audience-participation discussion sessions.
While the general meeting will be open to the public, a classified session could be organized at Los Alamos given enough interest. Participants interested in a classified session, please contact Eric Dors at firstname.lastname@example.org or 505-667-9023.
