Default COROT space mission

Hi all,

Here is a little article about soon to be launched space mission:

COROT space mission

Search for exoplanets, planets which circle around some other star then
our Sun, started in 1995 with the discovery of first such planet, called
51 Pegasi b. Since then, 200 other exoplanets have been found, but
because of Earths atmosphere, search has come close to the point where
Earth based telescopes cannot keep up.

French space agency, CNES (Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales), together
with ESA (European Space Agency) is soon launching COROT satellite for
more precise search of exoplanets, and to study interiors of stars.


happy holidays to anyone,
