The discovery of a large disc of dust around a binary star system could force astronomers to rethink their computer models of the Universe.
Previous observations turned up no sign of the disc at WZ Sagittae.
But data from Nasa's Spitzer infrared telescope confirmed there was much more to this object than previously thought.
The discovery may have implications for the study of everything from supermassive black holes to the formation of planets.
