Ultimate Spitzer Phase Curve Survey
(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. Along 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.
