  • The mass of CoRoT-7b, the first transiting super-Earth exoplanet, is still a subject of debate. A wide range of masses have been reported in the literature ranging from as high as 8 M ⊕ to as low as 2.3 M ⊕. This range in mass is largely due to the activity level of the star that contributes a significant amount of radial velocity (RV) jitter and how the various methods correct this jitter. Although most mass determinations give a density consistent with a rocky planet, the lower value permits… CONTINUE READING
