Abstract: We report the discovery of a long-period g-mode oscillation in the previously known short-period p-mode sdB pulsator HS 0702+6043. This makes this star an extraordinary object, unique as a member of the family of sdB pulsators, and one of the very few known pulsating stars overall exhibiting excited modes along both the acoustic and gravity branches of the nonradial pulsation spectrum. Because p-modes and g-modes probe different regions of a pulsating star, HS 0702+6043 holds a tremendous potential for future detailed asteroseismological investigations.
