A multi-institutional, multi-national science team will soon submit a NASA
proposal to build a constellation of spacecraft to fly into the near-Earth
solar wind in a swarm spanning a multitude of scales in order to obtain
critically needed measurements that will reveal the underlying dynamics of
magnetized turbulence. This white paper, submitted to the Plasma 2020 Decadal
Survey Committee, provides a brief overview of turbulent systems that
constitute an area of compelling plasma physics research, including why this
mission is needed, and how this mission will achieve the goal of revealing how
energy is transferred across scales and boundaries in plasmas throughout the
universe.
