By detecting nearly 20000 solar-like pulsators, the space missions CoRoT and Kepler have tremendously enhanced our understanding of low-mass stars. The asteroseimic data collected by those space missions allowed us to determine precisely radii, masses and ages of stars, enabling us to observe the evolution of stars with exquisite details. Asteroseismology also provided us an insight on the core of Red Giants, revealed rotation profiles and helped to constrain the exoplanets fundamental characteristics such as the mass, radius, orbit and habitability.
This talk will review some of the major advancements in asteroseismology enabled by CoRoT and Kepler, with a particular focus on main sequence stars.
