Protoplanetary Discs in the Orion Nebula

Protoplanetary Discs in the Orion Nebula

These are Hubble Space Telescope images of four newly discovered protoplanetary disks around young stars in the Orion nebula, located 1, 500 light-years away. Gas and dust disks, long suspected by astronomers to be an early stage of planetary formation, can be directly seen in visible light by Hubble.
