Peter Gao's Neighborhood Lecture Series lecture: "Hot Jupiters, Super Puffs, and Lava Planets, Oh My! Exoplanet Science in JWST Year 1"
The successful launch of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) heralds a new age in the exploration of our Universe, and in particular the study of exoplanets. JWST's large aperture and wide and continuous wavelength coverage will allow for the detection and characterization of a host of atmospheric phenomena on exoplanets through observations of exoplanet transits, secondary eclipses, and phase curves, which will in turn revolutionize our understanding of exoplanet formation processes and habitability. In this Neighborhood lecture, I will highlight the exoplanet observations that will take place in the first year of JWST operations, which target a diverse set of objects from giant planets down to worlds smaller than Earth and sample temperatures from star-like to those conducive to life.
