Artist's impression of the disc around a young star
This video shows an artist’s impression of the evolution of the disc around a young star like HL Tauri. From the material in the disc — mostly gas and fine dust — planets begin to form and sweep up surrounding material to create dark patches and ring structures in this disc.
Note that the planets are not shown to scale.Credit:
