Exoplanetary Scratchpad

[SysBP Img]

A red giant star and a less evolved star orbiting nearby. The giant star expelled material which formed a disc around it. The other star also has a disc. This is the first time a disk of an aged star was directly observed with this detail. It is not clear if disks like these can lead to planetary formation.
