For the first time, scientists are able to directly study the formation of a planet at a very early stage. Observing time at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) on Paranal Mountain is a very precious commodity – and yet the Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile spent an entire night with a high-resolution infrared camera pointed at a single object in the night sky. The data collected by the Naco optics instrument enabled an international team headed by ETH Zurich’s Sascha Quanz to confirm its earlier ...
