  • The edge-on disk surrounding the nearby young star β Pictoris is the archetype of ‘debris disks’, which are composed of dust and gas produced by collisions between—and evaporation of—planetesimals, analogues of Solar System comets and asteroids. These disks may provide insight into the formation and early evolution of terrestrial planets. Previous work on β Pic concluded that the disk gas has roughly solar abundances of elements, but this poses a problem because such gas should rapidly be blown… CONTINUE READING
