Baby Star Emerges From Hot Cocoon A large hot molecular cloud around a very young star was discovered by ALMA. This hot cloud is about ten times larger than those found around typical solar-mass baby stars, which indicates that the star formation process has more diversity than ever thought.

Astronomers Using ALMA Observe How Young Stars and Planets Grow

Astronomers have used the ALMA telescope to get their first glimpse of a fascinating stage of star formation in which planets forming around a young star are helping the star itself continue to grow, resolving a longstanding mystery.

Alien! No, it's just a dried up sting ray carcass - Imgur

A Jenny Haniver is the carcass of a ray or a skate which has been modified and subsequently dried, resulting in a grotesque preserved specimen. For centuries, sailors carved these “mermaids” out of.
