First proof of planetary system under formation
Highlights

Researchers from the University of Toronto have offered first-ever proof of a planetary system under formation. While those who observed the original image claimed that planets were most likely responsible for carving the gaps, some remained skeptical. In other words, these planets avoid violent collisions with each other by having specific orbital periods where they miss each other. Eventually the planets will scatter

Toronto: Researchers from the University of Toronto have offered first-ever proof of a planetary system under formation. While those who observed the original image claimed that planets were most likely responsible for carving the gaps, some remained skeptical. In other words, these planets avoid violent collisions with each other by having specific orbital periods where they miss each other. Eventually the planets will scatter, ejecting some and leaving the remaining bodies on elliptical orbits like the ones found around older stars.
