What the birth of a binary looks like
Two young stars are being born from turbulent disks of gas and dust in a new photo taken by the ALMA telescope in Chile.
- The circumstellar disks of the system, located in the Pipe Nebula, are fed by gas and dust in a larger disk surrounding the growing stars.
- The image — released on Oct. 4 — could help illuminate how binary systems of stars grow in deep space.
