RFI Response Number   First Author   Response Title   Summary Description


26   Carpenter, Kenneth G., et al.   Stellar Imager (SI): Developing and Testing a Predictive Dynamo Model for the Sun by Imaging Other Stars   Proposes a mission to resolve surface magnetic activity and subsurface structure and flows of a population of Sun-like stars in order to accelerate the development and validation of a predictive dynamo model for the Sun and enable accurate long-term forecasting of solar/ stellar magnetic activity.
27   Cassak, Paul, et al.   The Development of a Quantitative, Predictive Understanding of Solar Wind-Magnetospheric Coupling   Proposes a multi-pronged and interdisciplinary effort to understand observationally and theoretically what controls solar wind-magnetospheric coupling and how to predict it.
28   Chakrabarti, Supriya, et al.   Domestication of Scientific Satellites   Proposes the use of a flexible and scalable satellite system design in order to fill the wide gap between CubeSats and small Explorer missions and make space accessible to a new generation of Explorers.
29   Chandran, Benjamin D.G., et al.   Theoretical Research on Solar Wind Turbulence   Describes several areas in which future research on theory of solar wind turbulence holds particular promise and offers brief policy recommendations.
30   Chau, Jorge L., et al.   An Ionospheric Modification Facility for the Magnetic Equator   Proposes the deployment of an ionospheric modification facility, also called ionospheric heater, near the geomagnetic equator.
31   Chi, Peter J., et al.   A National Ground Magnetometer Program for Heliophysics Research   Recommends the establishment of a national ground magnetometer program to help coordinate, maintain, and enhance the magnetometer networks in North America.
32   Chollet, Eileen E., et al.   Career Development for Postdoctoral and Early Career Scientists   Discusses some career development issues early career scientists face and recommends some community changes that will help the field retain young talent.
33   Christe, Steven D., et al.   The Focusing Optics X-ray Solar Imager (FOXSI)   Proposes a mission to learn how and where electrons are accelerated, along which field lines they travel away from the acceleration site, where they are stopped, and how some electrons escape into interplanetary space, using the Focusing Optics X-ray Solar Imager.
34   Christian, Eric R., et al.   Heliophysics Instrument and Technology Development Program (HITDP)   Describes a program to reinvigorate hardware development, provide a pathway for new technology to be infused into missions, develop the next generation of instrument scientists, and ensure a healthy science mission program.
35   Christensen, Andrew B., et al.   The International Space Station as a Space Physics Observation Platform V2   Demonstrates that the Exposed Facility on the Japanese Experiment Module is suitable for siting optical instrumentation and conducting scientific experiments.
