Interstellar
An artist´ depiction of the immediate environment of a young star, MWC297 (cross-section). The measurements obtained with ESO´ Very Large Telescope Interferometer and AMBER show that the star is surrounded by a disk of gas and dust, and that a stellar wind blows into space above and below the disk. This region, analysed for the first time ever, has dimensions comparable to the orbit of Mars around the sun. Within that region, new planets may be created from the material of the disk.
