Exoplanetary Scratchpad

[SysBP Img]

Star system in the star forming region of Orion's belt. It has a circumstellar disk (probably Carbon based) with a gap in it (0.2 to 46 AU), but no apparent planets responsible for the gap. Instead, complex, perhaps clumpy dust was found in it. The star is very young (5 to 10 MYO) and twice as massive as the Sun.
