COROT-1b - Detection and Discovery

Detection and Discovery

The planet was announced by the COROT mission (a CNES project with European Space Agency participation). The planet is a large hot Jupiter, about 1.49 times the radius of Jupiter and approximately 1.03 times as massive, based on ground observations of the star. Its large size is due to its low density combined with the intense heating of its parent star causing the outer layers of the atmosphere to bloat.
