Abstract

The James-Webb Telescope, to be launched in 2021, will be a great tool to measure the size of asteroids. Many mid-infrared observations will detect asteroids, whether that's intended or not. We calculate how many asteroids will be detected that way (serendipitously): many thousands, mostly asteroids that are too small to be observable today.
