Studying the time evolution of the disks in which planets form

A group of NPF scientists investigated the lifetime ¬†of protoplanetary disks in triple stellar systems. A common result of star formation is that most stars are created as part of multiple stellar systems. We also know that the formation of protoplanetary disks is a natural by-product of star formation and, therefore, protoplanetary disks are expected … Continue reading Studying the time evolution of the disks in which planets form
