Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission VIII. CoRoT-7b: the first Super-Earth with measured radius
Aims. We report the discovery of very shallow (ΔF/F ≈ 3.4× 10 −4 ), periodic dips in the light curve of an active V = 11.7 G9V star observed by the CoRoT satellite, which we interpret as caused by aExpand

A seven-planet resonant chain in TRAPPIST-1
Orbital parameters for the seventh Earth-sized transiting planet around star TRAPPIST-1 are reported, along with an investigation into the complex three-body resonances linking every member of thisExpand

Spitzer 3.6 and 4.5 μm full-orbit light curves of WASP-18
We present new light curves of the massive hot Jupiter system WASP-18 obtained with the Spitzer spacecraft covering the entire orbit at 3.6 and 4.5 μm. These light curves are used to measure theExpand

Fast-evolving weather for the coolest of our two new substellar neighbours
We present the results of intense photometric monitoring in the near-infrared ( 0.9 m) with the TRAPPIST robotic telescope of the newly discovered binary brown dwarf WISE J104915.57-531906.1, theExpand

The High Albedo of the Hot Jupiter Kepler-7 B
Hot Jupiters are expected to be dark from both observations (albedo upper limits) and theory (alkali metals and/or TiO and VO absorption). However, only a handful of hot Jupiters have been observedExpand

Characterization of the hot Neptune GJ 436 b with Spitzer and ground-based observations
We present Spitzer Space Telescope infrared photometry of a secondary eclipse of the hot Neptune GJ 436 b. The observations were obtained using the 8-µm band of the InfraRed Array Camera (IRAC). TheExpand

A map of the large day–night temperature gradient of a super-Earth exoplanet
Over the past decade, observations of giant exoplanets (Jupiter-size) have provided key insights into their atmospheres, but the properties of lower-mass exoplanets (sub-Neptune) remain largelyExpand

The nature of the TRAPPIST-1 exoplanets
Context. The TRAPPIST-1 system hosts seven Earth-sized, temperate exoplanets orbiting an ultra-cool dwarf star. As such, it represents a remarkable setting to study the formation and evolution ofExpand

Stellar Parameters for Trappist-1
TRAPPIST-1 is an ultracool dwarf star transited by seven Earth-sized planets, for which thorough characterization of atmospheric properties, surface conditions encompassing habitability, and internalExpand

Detection of thermal emission from a super-earth
We report on the detection of infrared light from the super-Earth 55 Cnc e, based on four occultations obtained with Warm Spitzer at 4.5 μm. Our data analysis consists of a two-part process. In aExpand
