“The size of the disk is very similar to our own solar system,” Segura-Cox explains. “Even the mass of the proto-star is just a little less than our Sun’s. Studying such young planet-forming disks around proto-stars can give us important insights into our own origins.”

If verified, the new discovery suggests that planets may form 500,000 years earlier than previously thought within the overall lifespan of a star system. 

Given the possible protostar’s close proximity to our planet and young age, it will be a fantastic resource for scientists here on Earth to study planet formation as it happens.
