Abstract: The Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes (MAST) offers data from dozens of missions, including flagship missions like HST, TESS, and, soon, JWST. We've identified the need for science-focused Portals that not only show results from the MAST archive, but also present additional information and tools to further explore the data itself. We have started addressing that need by creating Exo.MAST, which focuses on extrasolar planet studies. We will present how Exo.MAST can be used to facilitate exploration and scientific research and how it works under-the-hood, from database design and data ingestion, to the API and web interface.
