Webb space telescope can peep into alien worlds

The world’s most powerful space telescope will give us our first true image of alien worlds.

The James Webb Space Telescope features powerful spectroscopic and imaging capabilities across a wide infrared wavelength range.  These attributes will change the way we learn about the composition of other worlds and planet-forming disks.  Direct imaging techniques will be used to study young giant exoplanets and the environments in which planets form and evolve around stars.

This modern device will help scientists detect thermal light on alien worlds and thus examine the planet’s atmospheric composition and activities.  It will also help reveal signs of molecules essential to life, like methane, carbon dioxide, and water.  Who knows, we might just find Earth 2.0 with the James Webb Space Telescope.
