In every case thus far, and for the foreseeable future, any direct image of an exoplanet will be a spatially unresolved dot--just as images of stars are unresolved --because the planet's tiny disk is orders of magnitude smaller than the diffraction (resolution) limit of even the largest telescopes.
We have made the first direct image of gravitational waves, or ripples in space-time across the primordial sky, and verified a theory about the creation of the whole universe," Chao-Lin Kuo, an assistant professor of physics at Stanford University and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, and a co-leader of the BICEP2 collaboration said.

The direct image generation methods are extremely fast and allow for an efficient extraction of the dominant scattering centers of an object, which can be used for compressed scattering center representations of the scattering behaviour of complex objects in the far-field [11] as well as in the near-field [12].
