CLASP

CLASP is a sounding rocket experiment further to investigate the mysteries of the Sun that Hinode pioneered unveiling. It was launched on September 3, 2015, and successfully observed the polarization signals to derive the magnetic fields in the solar chromosphere. CLASP is also aimed at a path finder for the Solar-C mission.

SOLAR-C

Hinode has taught us that it is important to precisely measure the magnetic fields and plasma structures connecting the photosphere and the corona with resolutions higher than those of Hinode. The mission to realize this type of observation in space is our next solar observing satellite, SOLAR-C.
