Abstract: The second space VLBI project VSOP-2 has just approved, and started construction of the satellite Astro-G in the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science (ISAS). Its key science targets are to investigate physical phenomena around massive black holes with its superb spatial resolutions up to 40 micro arcsec. By the dual polarization capability at all the three observing frequencies at 8, 22, and 43 GHz, VSOP-2 is anticipated to be a powerful tool to investigate structures of the magnetic field in AGN jets to see the acceleration and collimation mechanisms
