Microlensing 18 – Santa Barbara

The 18th annual conference on microlensing was held in Santa Barbara in January. The main topic was of course planetary microlensing, with a great deal of discussion centred on getting results of new planetary systems out quickly.

Three-lens systems are also of particular interest for many people in the field, especially as the power of microlensing to detect multiple-planet systems has been demonstrated.

And there was a great day out at the California Science Centre:
