The conventional wisdom is that planets coagulate inside a vast disk of gas and dust encircling newborn stars. But the details of the process are not well understood because it takes millions of years to happen as the disk undergoes numerous changes until it finally dissipates.
The Hubble Space Telescope has looked closely at one of those disks around a nearby star and found an unexpected and surprising feature.
Please join +Tony Darnell Dr.+Carol Christian and +Scott Lewis as they delve into these new observations with the team of astronomers who made them.
