Spectroscopy tells us such fabulous stuff sometimes, and at other times it leads us astray. These guys do the fabulous stuff....colors of exoplanets that we should be able to discern with the next generation of telescopes. SEE:http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/1102/1102.3625v2.pdf

It is impressive, yet I am a little surprised if, inded, this is the first work on this idea. Something simpler came to me when I was developing the uber colorimeter - the Asterochromograph.
