Use of both the Spitzer Space Telescope during the warm phase of its mission (after its cryogen has been exhausted) and the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope to study the planets detected by Kepler. The data will also be used to confirm the planetary nature of many candidates identified by the Kepler Mission and to detect false positives.
