Planet Construction Sites Are Cleaner Than Predicted

So-called Super-Jupiters apparently clean up after themselves. The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) reveals cavities in the disc surrounding 4 stars, caused by two processes: intense winds coming off the young stars and the forming planets aggregating dust, by gravity, as they become more massive.

The story is too old to be commented.
