Abstract: Space-VLBI is known to achieve greatly increased angular resolution compared with ground-based VLBI observations. VSOP-2 will offer 75 ╬╝arcsec angular resolution at 22 GHz. With this improved angular resolution, VSOP-2 observations of H2O megamaser will refine the measurements of proper motions, accelerations, distances to galaxies, and other physical parameters of galactic nuclei. In this presentation, the prospects of VSOP-2 observations of extragalactic H2O maser with strong emphasis on H2O megamaser are presented.
