(Measurements of the Ultraviolet Spectral Characteristics of Low-mass Exoplanet host Stars)
(HST UV survey of some M Dwarfs that host exoplanets)

MUSCLES (for Measurements of the Ultraviolet Spectral Characteristics of Low-mass Exoplanet host Stars) is a survey using HST, to record ultraviolet spectra of some M dwarves that host extra-solar planets. UV is of interest in studying the atmosphere of Jovian exoplanets, thus accurate records of these stellar UV spectra will be of help.
