Origins of Stars and Planets
When studying the origins of stars and planets, researchers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) use telescopes and advanced models to study the formation and death of stars, the physical and chemical processes in the spinning clouds of gas and dust where these stars are born, and the direct detection of planets around other stars. JPL collaborates with many groups that use telescopes to look for these conditions in the universe.Read More about Origins of Stars and Planets
