Planet-forming Lifeline Discovered in a Binary Star System - ALMA Examines Ezekiel-like “Wheel in a Wheel” of Dust and Gas

For the first time, researchers have detected a streamer of gas flowing from a massive outer disc toward the inner reaches of a binary star system. This never-before-seen feature may be responsible for sustaining a second, smaller disc of planet-forming material that otherwise would have disappeared long ago. Half of Sun-like stars are born in binary systems, meaning that these findings will have major consequences for the hunt for exoplanets. (ESO)

Venus is visible above Earth's moon, which is illuminated solely by light reflected from Earth.

NASA's MESSENGER Satellite Captures Spectacular Color Mosaic of Mercury

NASA image acquired: January 14, 2008 This spectacular color mosaic shows the eastern limb of Mercury as seen by MESSENGER as the spacecraft departed the planet following the mission's first Mercury flyby in January 2008. The colors of this image are not those that would be seen by the human eye but instead convey information about the distribution of different rock types on Mercury's surface. The different rock types result in subtle color variations across all of the 11 WAC narrow-band…
