The Disk Around AFGL 4176 (IMAGE) University of Leeds Caption This is an artist's impression of the disk around the forming high-mass star AFGL 4176. The disk is 50 times larger than the size of Pluto's orbit, but it rotates around its star in a similar way to disks around forming low-mass stars. Credit K.G.
