Disc around the young star HD 163296 (observations+model)

New research carried out using ESO telescopes has, for the first time, allowed astronomers to reconstruct a detailed picture of the disc of matter around a young star. Stéphanie Renard of the Laboratoire d’Astrophysique de Grenoble and colleagues used the ESO VLT Interferometer to probe the secrets of the inner part of the disc around the star HD 163296. This is a reconstructed image of the VLTI observations using a model of HD 163296 with a central star surrounded by a disc. The comparison of this model with the observed images (image A) allows the astronomers to infer the properties of the inner regions around the young star.
