  • Solar Snow Lines Models of the formation of our solar system have suggested that condensation lines, or snow lines—the distance from a star beyond which a gas or a liquid can condense into the solid phase—are favorable locations for planet formation. Taking advantage of the increase of N2H+ abundance in cold regions where CO condenses out of the gas phase, Qi et al. (p. 630, published online 18 July) used the Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array to image the CO snow line in the disk… CONTINUE READING
