The National Science Foundation (NSF) Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) is about to start operations at the summit of Haleakalā (Hawai’i). DKIST first light occurred in late 2019 and produced the most detailed images of the solar surface. DKIST will join the early science phases of the NASA and ESA Parker Solar Probe and Solar Orbiter encounter missions. By combining in-situ measurements of the near-sun plasma environment and detail remote observations of multiple layers of the Sun, the three observatories form an unprecedented multi-messenger constellation to study the magnetic connectivity in the solar system. In this talk, I outline the synergistic science that this multi-messenger suite enables. It will create an unprecedented solar corona and inner heliospheric campaign aimed at understanding how stars create and control their magnetic environments. A fundamental aspect of the synergistic science is the unique ability of DKIST to measure the off-limb solar corona and map its magnetic field with unprecedented sensitivities and resolutions.
