[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED] Using the Hubble Space Telescope's Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer, Swain and his colleagues recorded infrared spectra from the planet, which periodically crosses in front of its parent star as seen from Earth.
Glitches since 2007 have put a few of the telescope's instruments out of operation, including the Advanced Camera for Surveys and the Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer.
Dan Batcheldor and his team improved the calibration of Hubble's Near-Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer to enable high-precision polarimetry.
In addition, because of a more recent glitch, the Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer will not be immediately operating and NASA might not attempt to revive them until a shuttle servicing mission now delayed until February.
