Ultimate Spitzer Phase Curve Survey

(USPCS)
(investigation of exoplanet atmospheres)

The Ultimate Spitzer Phase Curve Survey (USPCS) is a survey of Phase Curves of Extra-Solar Planets performed with Spitzer to study exoplanet Atmospheres and contribute to models. With the data collected, legacy data from Spitzer and HST were gathered. This is considered information-gathering and a pilot for such studies in the future by the JWST.
