A star with a ring of orbiting planets – that is the picture we know from our own solar system and from many of the thousands of exoplanets observed in recent years. But now researchers have discovered a system 400 light years away consisting of a binary star with three rotating gas discs observed around them.
A group of international scientists has new evidence that coral reef fish – which struggle to adapt to the warmer ocean temperatures brought about by global climate change – may instead opt to relocate to cooler parts of the ocean.
