Light from Exoplanets


Light from Exoplanets

For the first time, NASA's Spitzer Telescope has observed light coming from planets outside our solar system. With this data, the molecular make-up of the planets' atmospheres can be determined. An artist conception (left) shows one of the exoplanets-- a Jupiter-sized body that is hot, dry, & cloudy, and orbits near a fiery star (view an animation(1)). For more, visit Red Orbit(2) and the Spitzer Telescope site(3).
