Whitepaper #121 in the Decadal Survey for Solar and Space Physics (Heliophysics) 2024-2033. Main topics: basic research. Additional topics: emerging opportunities.
Exoplanetary research enriches heliophysics with an understanding of universal processes that operate in diverse environments. Heliophysics of exoplanetary systems should receive supplementary, interdisciplinary funding opportunities. Here we discuss areas of research for understanding the space environments of exoplanetary systems and observational and collaborative opportunities and challenges.
