CHEOPS is a space mission that belongs to the Cosmic Vision program of the European Space Agency ( ESA) and is expected to be launched in 2017. The main objective of this space telescope is to find small planets like our Earth study them in detail.

CHEOPS will look for transits of planets (ie, small eclipses) using a technique called very high precision photometry, which consists of measuring the brightness of the star every few seconds to detect a decline when the planet passes in front of disc of the star.
