16th International Conference on Gravitational Microlensing

Post by Lazarus on Sat Jan 28, 2012 10:27 am

Upcoming conference... Science with a Wide-field Infrared Telescope in Space and the 16th International Conference on Gravitational Microlensing

There are some interesting-looking presentations in the programme, seems there are a few more planets detected by microlensing in the pipeline...

(ooh I've become a dM star, when did that happen?)

When you've threspassed the hydrogen-deuterium burning limit, I think. Laughing

Seriously, the 2012 has begun with quite interesting discoveries.

A free-floating exoplanet with an exomoon seems a unique discovery, if true.

I was expect the announce of this first two exoplanets found from an near-infrared from The UKIRT Wide Transit Survey (WTS),but nothing was announced today... Sad

Here! look like that I found it, the presentation in the 16th International Conference on Gravitational Microlensing of

"Low-mass Habitable Exoplanets with a Wide-field Infrared Space Telescope"
( http://www.ipac.caltech.edu/wfir2012/abstracts/Martin.pdf ) at this link


http://www.ipac.caltech.edu/wfir2012/talks/Pasadena-Feb2012-emartin.pdf

I was expect more, it's not seems very impressive as the title it,
By the title and text, I was expect a low mass/size planet transit around a M dwarf star in the habitable zone,and not 2 more hot Jupiters Rolling Eyes

All Presentations it's online expect this Presentation:

MOA-2011-BLG-262Lb: Free-Floating Planet with an Exomoon or
Planetary System with Halo Kinematics

(but this presentation talk a little about exomoons detectability : http://www.ipac.caltech.edu/wfir2012/talks/Freeman_talk.pdf )

look like that keep this one as surprise,I hope that this one end up as earth-mass exomoon around a Free-Floating Planet Jupiter mass planet.

that I think will have great implications on earth-mass exomoons around Gas giants planets
