Astronomers have long discovered planetary disks because these disks are considered to be the first building blocks for the formation of large planets such as Earth and other planets in the olfactory system.

Scientists have long believed that planets are formed by protoplanetary disks orbiting stars, but they have pointed out that moons have another origin, for example, but they are not limited, and they are considered a separate entity. Mother planet.

For the first time, astronomers have observed a planetary disk orbiting a planet called “GQ Lupi B” orbiting its parent star 20 times larger than Jupiter’s orbit around the Sun.

According to the article published in “scitechdaily” magazine helped This discovery creates a new theory that moons form not only from planets, but also from planetary disks.

Research by a team of scientists led by Dr. Thomas Stolker, From the University of Leiden, Explored the planet and explored the properties of the “proto-lunar disk” orbiting the extraterrestrial “GQ Lupi B” outside the solar system, about 500 light-years away, known as “Super Jupiter”. .

The developing planet is empty inside

Stolker’s team collected data using a very large telescope, infrared images and a visible-light spectrometer.

The team monitored the thermal appearance of the disk around the planet, a lunar disk with a temperature much lower than that of the planet’s atmosphere, which led researchers to believe that there was a “hole” in the ring where the moon began to coalesce.

Using alpha rays, researchers were able to detect features of the planet’s atmosphere and observe that the planet was still in the developing stage, delivering material from its protoplanetary disk or extracting material from its protoplanetary disk. Star.
