The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is expected to revolutionize the current understanding of Jovian worlds over the coming decade. However, as the field pushes towards characterizing cooler, smaller, “terrestrial-like” planets, dedicated next-generation facilities will be required to tease out the small spectral signatures indicative of biological activity. Here, the feasibility of determining atmospheric properties, from near to mid-infrared transmission spectra, of transiting temperate terrestrial M-dwarf companions, has been evaluated.
