Whitepaper #067 in the Decadal Survey for Solar and Space Physics (Heliophysics) 2024-2033. Main topics: basic research. Additional topics: planetary magnetospheres; space-based missions/projects; emerging opportunities.
In this white paper, we present COMPASS, a novel mission concept designed to explore the uncharted and hazardous regions of Jupiter with highly capable instrumentation with the goal of making fundamental discoveries in space physics. The basic motivation to explore such a hazardous region is to expand the frontiers of Heliophysics in the next decade by investigating extreme radiation environments.
