Double Star with Weird and Wild Planet-forming Discs

30 julio 2014

Astronomers have found wildly misaligned planet-forming gas discs around the two young stars in the binary system HK Tauri.

The new result also helps to explain why so many exoplanets — unlike the planets in the Solar System — came to have strange, eccentric or inclined orbits.
