COROT Mission Ends

COROT Mission Ends

After several months of trying to reboot, mission planners for the exoplanet hunter have declared the satellite's failure official.

Exoplanet researchers are having a rough year. Just a few weeks after NASA announced its Kepler spacecraft had stopped working, the French space agency CNES has declared its own exoplanet hunter, COROT, is officially “mission accomplie.”

The COROT (Convection, Rotation, and planetary Transits) satellite actually stopped sending data last November. Since then, engineers have been wracking their brains and lab benches for a solution. They finally threw in the towel this month.
