Passion Project on Exoplanets Day #1

In school everyone had the choice of doing a passion project. This is like a mini capstone. At first I didn’t know what to do so I thought I wasn’t going to do the passion project but then I decided to do it on Exoplanets because I’m interested into space. Exoplanets are planets outside of our solar system that orbit a star. Today for my research I focused on how do you discover Exoplanets? I surfed the web until I found a reliable resource to use. I understood the concept of Radial velocity easily but what confused me was Micro lensing. It was confusing because the word ‘light’ appeared so many times and I couldn’t picture it in my head until I read it many times, then I finally understood how it worked.
