How to use disk in a sentence?

  1. Anastasios Tzanidakis:

    Based on the data currently available, this star appears to have a slow-moving companion that is surrounded by a large disk of material, if that material were in the solar system, it would extend from the sun to Earth’s orbit, or farther.

  2. Marcel Neeleman:

    The fact that we found the Wolfe Disk using this method, tells us that it belongs to the normal population of galaxies present at early times, when our newest observations with ALMA surprisingly showed that it is rotating, we realized that early rotating disk galaxies are not as rare as we thought and that there should be a lot more of them out there. Thanks to ALMA, we now have unambiguous evidence that they occur as early as 1.5 billion years after Big Bang.

  3. Alex Young:

    Annular eclipses are similar to total eclipses in that the moon, Earth and sun are aligned so that the moon moves directly in front of the Sun as viewed from Earth, but a total eclipse does not happen, that is the moon does not completely block out the visible disk of the sun because the moon is farther away and so its apparent size in the sky is [ slightly ] smaller than the sun. This means that a tiny ring of annulus of the solar disk is visible around the moon.

  4. Erin Kara:

    Tidal disruption events offer us this rare view at the most common kind of supermassive black hole in the universe— these so-called dormant supermassive black holes, tidal disruption events, where the stellar debris causes the formation of a temporary accretion disk, offers us a way to probe this population of supermassive black holes.

  5. Anonymous:
