Contains the first transiting planet found by the French COROT mission. It was discovered during a test run and promises to be the first of many detected. One of the largest exoplanets found (and least dense), it has about Jupiter's mass, but 50% more diameter. The planet later became the first exoplanet whose phases were detected from Earth.
