Scope The giant planets provide many keys to understanding planetary processes.
They play an important role in shaping our solar system, and the physical
and chemical processes they harbor also provide a unique opportunity to
study the phenomena relevant for studying Earth and other planets, including
exoplanetary systems. In this session, we discuss a wide range of topics
encompassing the giant planets and their moons, including their origins,
interiors, atmospheres, compositions, surface features, and electromagnetic
fields. To advocate for current and future outer planets exploration (Cassini,
Juno, New Horizons, JUICE, and beyond), we also call for discussions on
future missions to explore giant planet systems, including how to develop
better international cooperation. Discussion in this latter category will include
progress in developing a solar sail mission concept for observing the Jupiter
system and its trojan asteroids.
