ARIEL, the Atmospheric Remote-sensing Infrared Exoplanet Large-survey mission1-3 was selected in early 2018 by the European Space Agency (ESA) as the fourth medium-class mission (M4) launch opportunity of the Cosmic Vision Program, with an expected launch in late 2028. It is the first mission dedicated to the analysis of the chemical composition and thermal structures of up to a thousand transiting exoplanets atmospheres, which will expand planetary science far beyond the limits of our current knowledge.
