G_2 manifolds are seven-dimensional and carry a Ricci-flat metric. When looking for examples it is natural to include some symmetry assumption. This talk will focus on G_2 geometries with a torus symmetry. It will argue that there is one specific rank of the torus that is of particular interest and discuss what we currently know of the geometry and topology of such manifolds.

This is joint work with Thomas Bruun Madsen.
