SDSS 1557 is a binary star system, 1000 light-years away, consisting of a white dwarf orbiting a brown dwarf, Astronomers have found that the system is surrounded by a narrow disc or ring rich in rocky and metallic elements, which they suggest are in the process of coming together (accreting) to form new planets It's the first time evidence of rocky planet formation has been seen in a binary star systemSDSS 1557 is a binary star system, 1000 light-years away, consisting of a white dwarf orbiting a brown dwarf, Astronomers have found that the system is surrounded by a narrow disc or ring rich in rocky and metallic elements, which they suggest are in the process of coming together (accreting) to form new planets It's the first time evidence of rocky planet formation has been seen in a binary star system
Illustration of the formation of a gas giant planet. The planet is in the center, still growing. A concentric disc surrounds it, inside of which the natural satellites are forming via the process of accretion. The Sun is at the top, itself still contracting.Illustration of the formation of a gas giant planet. The planet is in the center, still growing.

Formation of moons around a gas giant, illustration. This is how the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, and possibly Uranus, are thought to have formed. The planet is in the center, still growing. A concentric disc surrounds it, inside of which the natural satellites are forming via the process of accretion. The illustration could also show the formation of planets around a star, which was a similar process albeit on a far larger scale.Formation of moons around a gas giant, illustration.
