Logically Irrational

So this is the first post in a long time, but I thought I would give an update. Just spent the last week helping (peripherally) with the integration and test of the Optical Telescope Element and Spacecraft Bus of the James Webb Space Telescope. Wish I was allowed to take pictures but the time lapse video should be posted somewhere by now. Feel extremely lucky to be involved with the project.

    Welcome back Logically,,,,Do you know if the webb will be able to discover a lot more extrasolar planets and see what kind of atmospheres they have?

    From my understanding, the primary mission of Webb in regard to exoplanets is investigating atmosphere composition of known exoplanets, though its capabilities would certainly allow it to find new ones as well. Finding new ones isn't its primary science goal though.
