Twinkle science team member Caprice Phillips explores the possibility of studying terrestrial-like planets with Twinkle.
Twinkle will perform simultaneous spectroscopic coverage of the 0.5 – 4.5 micron wavelength region, which covers many ammonia features. Therefore, the pursuit of searching for potential biosignatures in these worlds is exciting endeavour for the upcoming Twinkle space mission.
The spectroscopic characterisation of exoplanet atmospheres is a vital component in our search for molecular species on other planets.
This is the second blog in a series of posts discussing the key technical considerations of the Twinkle spacecraft design.
