Doesn't look like ESA chose PLATO for further development. Sad

The Science Programme Committee decided to maintain the PLATO mission, not selected for a flight opportunity on this occasion, as a possible competitor for a future flight opportunity.

A telescope to find thousands of planets beyond our Solar System is the hot favourite for selection as Europe's next medium-class science mission.

-Design calls for a suite of 34 telescopes to be mounted on a single satellite platform

-Mission should confirm and characterise hundreds of rocky worlds in habitable zones

-Its technology would have the sensitivity also to detect the planets' moons and rings

-Intricate measurements of the host stars (asteroseismology) would yield key information

-To launch from Sinnamary in French Guiana on a Soyuz rocket in 2023/2024

-Plato would be stationed 1.5 million km from Earth on its "nightside"
