    Chickens or eggs? ALMA rings as planet factories

    12 12月 2022

    Protoplanetary disks, the cradle of planets, contain a large amount of building blocks for planet formation -- (sub)millimeter-size solid particles -- pebbles. Yet, how, when, and where planets start to form is an outstanding question. In the past decade, through the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile, it was revealed that a large number of protoplanetary disks are rin...

  • A new model for the dynamics of TRAPPIST-1's seven Earth-like planets

    A new model for the dynamics of TRAPPIST-1's seven Earth-like planets

    22 2月 2022

    The red dwarf star TRAPPIST-1 is home to the largest number (which is seven) of Earth-sized planets ever found in a single planet system. Three of these planets may be suitable to harbor liquid water or even life and will be prime targets for the recently-launched JWST spacecraft. Different from the terrestrial planets in our solar system, scientists have determined that it is likely that the T...
