The CoRoT Legacy Book

The CoRoT Legacy Book

by the CoRot Team - Coordination Annie Baglin

The adventure of the ultra high precision photometry from space

This book is dedicated to all the people interested in the CoRoT mission and the beautiful data that were delivered during its six year duration.

Either amateurs, professional, young or senior researchers, they will find treasures not only at the time of this publication but also in the future twenty or thirty years.

It presents the data in their final version, explains how they have been obtained, how to handle them, describes the tools necessary to understand them, and where to find them. It also highlights the most striking first results obtained up to now. CoRoT has opened several unexpected directions of research and certainly new ones still to be discovered.
