Baby Planets Feed Their Mother Star
In this artist’s interpretation, baby planets forming around the young star HD 142527 are pulling streams of gas inward toward them as they grow. Much of the gas then overshoots the planets and continues inward to the portion of the disk close to the star, where it can eventually fall onto the star itself.
