IIRC, we should be able to start detecting planetary atmospheres soon. That's going to be possible with either the James Webb solar-orbiting telescope or... another one I can't remember right now.

The significance of detecting planetary atmospheres is that it will provide a lot of clues as to what's going on below. In some cases it could strongly suggest a planetary industrial society.

Beautiful image! It is humbling to think of the size of the universe, and realize how insignificant planet Earth is in the scheme of things. It is also incredible to see the different shapes and colors of the various galaxies. The variety is stunning! Thanks for sharing Tii!
