    The CoRoT satellite identified 10 new exoplanets by transit, then confirmed by ground observations. Seven of them are "hot Jupiters", sometimes with unusual characteristics, and the three left have smaller masses: one slightly smaller than Saturn and two Neptune-like exoplanets orbiting around the same star. Those discoveries were announced during the second CoRoT Symposium, in June 14th-17th, 2011 in Marseille, France.

    Thanks to CoRoT (Convection, Rotation & planetary Transits) satellite products, an international team, including French investigators of the CEA, the OMP and the Observatory of Paris, discovered a remote star (100 light years) with a sunlike magnetic activity cycle. This result, obtained for the first time thanks to the stellar seismology technique, was published in Science in August 27th, 2010.
