CoRoT - Hunting for Planets in Space

CoRoT is the first space mission which is systematically hunting for extrasolar planets. Among CoRoT's successful detections, the most exciting result was the discovery of a terrestrial planet whose radius is two times that of the Earth. These results have encouraged the prolongation of the mission until 2013.
