Plasma turbulence in the solar system is an interdisciplinary field of study and also a challenge in physics in theory and observation. This chapter reviews historical developments of the two distinct subjects: turbulence research and space plasma research, and introduces fundamental concepts and notions such as energy cascade in turbulence as well as the plasma physical picture of the solar system.
