Overview of the LAPYUTA mission (Life-environmentology, Astronomy, and PlanetarY Ultraviolet Telescope Assembly)

Abstract

LAPYUTA (Life-environmentology, Astronomy, and PlanetarY Ultraviolet Telescope Assembly) is a future UV space telescope, which is selected as a candidate for JAXA's 6th M-class mission in 2023. Launch is planned for the early 2030s. LAPYUTA has the following four objectives. Objective 1 focuses on the subsurface ocean environment of Jupiter's icy moons and the atmospheric evolution of terrestrial planets. Objective 2 is to characterize the atmospheres and estimate the surface environment of exoplanets around the habitable zone by detecting their exospheric atmospheres. In cosmology and astronomy, Objective 3 will test whether the structures of present-day galaxies contain ubiquitous Lyα halos and reveal the physical origins of Lyα halos. Objective 4 elucidates the synthesis process of heavy elements from observations of ultraviolet radiation from hot gas immediately after neutron star mergers.
