As Webb begins observing exoplanets, scientists use Spitzer data & brown dwarfs to reveal how silicate clouds form

In a new study from a group of researchers in Canada, data from NASA’s now-retired Spitzer Space Telescope was used to determine the conditions under which silicate clouds form on distant exoplanets outside of our solar system — giving scientists insight into what’s inside the atmospheres of exoplanets similar in size, temperature, and composition to … Read more
