Exoplanetary Scratchpad

[SysBP Img]

First brown dwarf found to have rocky grains in its dust belt, a precursor to rocky planets. Embedded in a stellar nursery 400 light years away. Scientists previously thought such a system would not be possible because they were thought to have too few dusty particles moving too quickly.
