Further constraints on how to form planets

Observing protoplanetary disks with ALMA yields astonishing information about structures in disks. Today’s astrobite presents and discusses a thrilling disk with an inner dust cavity, as well as gaps and rings. Moreover the gaseous disk extends to much larger radii in gas than the dusty disk and may possibly be evidence for radial drift and effects of planet formation.
