Disk Around Red Dwarf Stars in the Stephenson 34 System

April 12, 2006
Astronomers were surprised to discover a 25-million-year-old protoplanetary disk around a pair of red dwarf stars 350 light-years away. Gravitational stirring by the binary star system (shown in this artist's conception) may have prevented planet formation. Credit: David A. Aguilar (CfA)
