Chaos in cosmos: Stars with three planet-forming discs of gas

(University of Copenhagen - Niels Bohr Institute) A star with a ring of planets orbiting around it - that is the picture we know from our own solar system and from many of the thousands of exoplanets observed in recent years. But now researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute have discovered a system consisting of two stars with three rotating planet-forming accretion discs around them.
