Hubblecast 88: Mysterious Ripples Found Racing Through Planet-forming Disc

Using images from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and ESO’s Very Large Telescope, astronomers have discovered unique and totally unexpected structures within the dusty disc around the star AU Microscopii.
This Hubblecast takes a look at these fast-moving wave-like features, which are unlike anything ever observed, or even predicted.
