Weekly Space Hangout: Dr. Jane Huang and Dr. Jonathan Williams Discuss Spiral Protoplanetary Disks
October 14 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
This week we are joined by Dr. Jane Huang and Dr. Jonathan Willams from the Center for Astrophysics, Harvard & Smithsonian (CfA). Dr. Huang, Dr. Williams, and their team recently announced that the protoplanetary disk surrounding the star RU Lup (in the constellation of Lupus) is not only surprisingly large, but also has a very distinct spiral shape that extends nearly 1000 AU beyond Ru Lup.
