Gas in Circumplanetary Disk (IMAGE) National Radio Astronomy Observatory Caption Scientists studying the young star AS 209 have detected gas in a circumplanetary disk for the first time, which suggests the star system may be harboring a very young Jupiter-mass planet. Science images from the research show (right) blob-like emissions of light coming from otherwise empty gaps in the highly-structured, seven-ring disk (left). Credit ALMA (ESO/NAOJ/NRAO), J. Bae (U.
