Finding Planets with Microlensing
Jennifer Yee works with the MicroFUN collaboration, a network of telescopes run by professional and amateur astronomers. This collaboration uses gravitational lensing to find planets around distant stars. So far, the MIcroFUN collaboration has participated in the discovery of 8 of the 13 microlensing planets and made the first measurement of the frequency of planets in the outer regions of solar systems.
