PLATO Week 5

PLAnetary Transits and Oscillations of stars (PLATO) is the third medium-class mission in ESA's  Cosmic Vision programme. Its objective is to find and study a large number of extrasolar planetary systems, with emphasis on the properties of terrestrial planets in the habitable zone around solar-like stars. PLATO has also been designed to investigate seismic activity in stars, enabling the precise characterisation of the planet host star, including its age.

This is an internal progress meeting of the PLATO Mission Consortium (invitation only). For any questions/inquiries, please contact us at

Registration deadline: 15th October.
