• Context. The nearby K2 V star e Eridani hosts one known inner planet, an outer Kuiper belt analog, and an inner disk of warm dust. Spitzer/IRS measurements indicate that the warm dust is present at distances as close as a few AU from the star. Its origin is puzzling, since an “asteroid belt” that could produce this dust would be unstable because of the known inner planet. Aims. Here we test a hypothesis that the observed warm dust is generated by collisions in the outer belt and is transported… CONTINUE READING
