MIT warns astronomers risk misinterpreting planetary signals in Webb Space Telescope data

Astronomers risk misinterpreting planetary signals in data from the James Webb Space Telescope if models for interpreting the data don’t improve, an MIT study finds. In this concept image, the James Webb Telescope captures light around a newly discovered planet (left). However, when scientists analyze this data, the limitations of opacity models could produce planetary …
