[62.21] Gravitational Microlensing Planet Searches from an Antarctic Site

D. Bennett (U. Notre Dame)

The gravitational microlensing planet search technique is reviewed with an emphasis on its advantages over other ground based planet search techniques. The current observational status of microlensing follow-up planet search programs and the advantage of a microlensing follow-up program in Antarctica are discussed. Finally, an ambitious microlensing planet search program which relies upon only a single Antarctic telescope is also presented.
