Scientists hope JWST will help detect alien life on exoplanets

Scientists searching for alien life hope that an upcoming megatelescope could reveal whether any of the recently discovered 7 Earth-size planets of the TRAPPIST-1 star system have life-supporting atmospheres.

Scheduled to be launched in 2018, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will be sensitive enough to detect or identify the chemical components of the exoplanets' atmospheres as these planets will be passing in front of their host star.
