HUBBLE SHOWS JUST HOW VIOLENT PLANET FORMATION CAN BE
New photos taken by the Hubble Space Telescope show a region of
space inside the Orion Nebula, where new planets are being formed.
Far from a gentle process, though, the young planets are blasted by
radiation from a nearby star called Theta 1 Orionis C - astronomers
have described the process as "building a skyscraper in the middle
of a tornado".
