ALMA image of the protoplanetary disc around V883 Orionis

13 July, 2016 / Read time: 1 minute

This image of the planet-forming disc around the young star V883 Orionis was obtained by ALMA in long-baseline mode. This star is currently in outburst, which has pushed the water snow line further from the star and allowed it to be detected for the first time.
