PLATO

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.

The Centre for Electronic Imaging is working to characterise and understand the effects of radiation damage to PLATO’s CCDs, some of the largest ever made for space applications.
