The CoRoT (COnvection, internal ROtation and Transiting planets) space mission was launched in the last days of 2006, becoming the first major space mission dedicated to the search for and study of exoplanets, as well as doing the same for asteroseismological studies of stars. Designed as a small mission, it became highly successful, with, among other things discovering the first planet proved by the measurements of its radius and mass to be definitely ”Rocky” or Earth like in its composition…

Context. The CoRoT mission, a pioneer in exoplanet searches from space, has completed its first 150 days of continuous observations of ∼12 000 stars in the galactic plane. An analysis of the raw data

A transiting giant planet with a temperature between 250 K and 430 K

TLDR
Transit observations of CoRoT-9b, the largest of all transiting planets, are reported, which is found to be well described by standard evolution models with an inferred interior composition consistent with that of Jupiter and Saturn.

Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission: XV. CoRoT-15b: A brown-dwarf transiting companion

We report the discovery by the CoRoT space mission of a transiting brown dwarf orbiting a F7V star with an orbital period of 3.06 days. CoRoT-15b has a radius of 1.12 +0.30 ―0.15 R Jup and a mass of
