Nebular theory tested before our eyes!

In the Life in the Universe course, we talk about the Nebular theory and how it explains the formation of planets. Today, the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) team unveiled an image of a planet-forming disk around a young star HL Tauri. Hopefully that provides further credibility to my students when thinking of the origin of our own solar system. For more details see the official press release.
