Whitepaper #372 submitted to the Planetary Science and Astrobiology Decadal Survey 2023-2032. Topics: giant planets systems

It would also address fundamental questions about giant planets and astrophysical disks. We advocate that this mission concept be studied as a potential option for the New Frontiers program.
