Paper Abstract

Japan's spacecraft PLANET-B will be launched to Mars. An EUV measurement of 30.4 nm wavelength is proposed for an interplanetary He II observation during the cruising phase from the Earth to the Mars. This measurement will help our understanding of the creation and loss of interplanetary He II. Another objective is the imaging of the plasmasphere and magnetotail of the Earth. The EUV scanner we have designed for PLANET-B mission will provide the opportunity to observe both interplanetary and magnetospheric He II.
