COROT finds ten more exoplanets

While the Kepler space telescope has received a lot of the attention lately, the other planet-finding space telescope, COROT, has still been busy as well. Ten more confirmed exoplanets were announced at the second COROT symposium in Marseille, France on June 14. They are all gas giants, like Jupiter, Saturn, etc. but have a wide range of masses, densities and orbits.  Two of them are similar in size to Neptune, and orbit the same star.

Note: the article mentions the new total of confirmed exoplanets as 565, although The Extrasolar Planets Encyclopaedia, one of the best official sources, still has the number as 562.
