FINESSE, a NASA MIDEX mission in Step 2, would conduct a large, uniform survey of exoplanet atmospheres and create a statistically significant sample for comparative planetology. FINESSE’s technical capabilities, driven by a scientific program to study planetary formation and climate mechanisms, enable additional exoplanet science presented here.
