We are performing an in-depth study of the role of two-nucleon currents in electroweak processes using light nuclei as a workbench to compute these processes and quantify their uncertainties. If successful, the results will fill a knowledge gap in the field of atomic nuclei interactions and inform model-independent predictions of nuclear processes relevant to mission-related activities that rely on nuclear, chemical, and isotopic science.
