Laboratory for Space and Astrophysical Plasmas (LSAP)

LSAP will focus on bringing together and applying our understanding of plasma physics in the relatively well-observed solar system with increasingly sophisticated astronomical observations in order to explore common plasma-physical mechanisms.

An important goal of the Laboratory will be to foster stronger links between space physics and astronomy/astrophysics by identifying and developing joint areas of research. LSAP will seek to define viable projects and identify targets of opportunity for funding.
