SPICA

Post by Lazarus on 15th March 2011, 3:52 pm

Here's about the potential of the proposed SPICA mission for detecting exoplanets:

Direct detection and spectral characterization of outer exoplanets with the SPICA coronagraph instrument (SCI)

Apparently it will be possible to detect Uranus-analogues around Altair and Neptune-analogues around Vega. These planets would not be detectable via JWST.
