Space experts claim that protoplanetary disks, which is a combination of dust and gas rings around newly born stars, are the places where new planets take birth.
These disks are known to exist all over the universe but creation and development of planets within them wasn’t yet been confirmed with evidence.
According to scientists, detection or finding of planets is quite difficult as these planets are surrounded by thick layers of gases and dust.
Recently, LkCa 15, a protoplanetary disk in the Taurus constellation, 518 light years away from Earth, was inspected for a planetary presence.
At about a distance, equal to 42 times the distance between Earth and the Sun, from the star, two bright planets covered with rings of dust and gas were found.
These planets were orbiting the star and looked very much like a small Neptune or Saturn. The discovery of these planets was a stunning example of hunt for new exoplanets.
