How do jumbo planets such as Jupiter form? Astronomers may have caught one in a nearby solar system being born, offering an answer.

This is pretty neat.
Hopefully it pans out, and is what it appears to be. We could be getting another opportunity to observe how the universe puts itself together.

A pair of dusty filaments stretch more than 7.4 billion miles across the length of the solar system of nearby star HD14252, feeding a young planet's growth in a manner never seen before, report radio astronomers led by Simon Casassus of Chile's Universidad de Chile in Santiago.

I always find this stuff to be very interesting, I know many of you do as well.

Threads like this is why I like ATS so much.

I am also very interested in topics like this one.

That video animation was amazing to see.
