  • Newly forming protoplanets are expected to create cavities and substructures in young, gas-rich protoplanetary disks1–3, but they are difficult to detect as they could be confused with disk features affected by advanced image analysis techniques4,5. Recently, a planet was discovered inside the gap of the transitional disk of the T Tauri star PDS 706,7. Here, we report on the detection of strong Hα emission from two distinct locations in the PDS 70 system, one corresponding to the previously… CONTINUE READING
