Exoplanet Disks In Formation

  • Released Thursday, June 25, 2015

These visualizations were developed using a simulation run from the SMACK (Superparticle-Method Algorithm for Collisions in Kuiper belts) code.

This visualization was generated using half of the disk, tilting down from top view to edge on to better reveal the profile of the disk material.
