POSSIBLE FORMING PLANETARY SYSTEM CAUGHT BY ESA TELESCOPE
-------------------------

The European Space Agency's infrared space telescope, ISO, has measured
the size of a proto-planetary system, surrounding a newly-born star. ISO
sees a very young 'baby-star' surrounded by a disk of the same diameter
as Jupiter's orbit, in which planets are likely to form in the future.
