Birth of a baby planet

(PhysOrg.com) — University of Sydney astronomer, Professor Peter Tuthill, is one of an international team of astronomers who have announced a major step forward in the quest to find planets in orbit around distant stars. The discovery has been published in the international journal Astronomy and Astrophysics.

With this exciting new discovery the original hypothesis that stars form by accreting material the dust and particle in the orbital plane surrounding them, first asserted by Kant, appears to have been observed and thus confirmed.

How cool is that?
