Planet Formation in Action?
Amazing results from my friend Nuria Huélamo and her collaborators ….
From the ESO website:
“Using ESO’s Very Large Telescope an international team of astronomers has been able to study the short-lived disc of material around a young star that is in the early stages of making a planetary system. For the first time a smaller companion could be detected that may be the cause of the large gap found in the disc. Future observations will determine whether this companion is a planet or a brown dwarf.”
I recommend the video, wonderful.
