  1. Dheeraj Pasham:

    The fact that we can track this region of bright X-ray emission as it circles the black hole lets us track just how quickly material in the disk is spinning, that gives us information about the spin rate of the supermassive black hole itself.

  2. Richard Teague:

    We do not really know the details of how we go from small grains of dust to massive gas giants, if we're able to catch them at their birth we can see where they form in the disk. This will allow us to better understand how many planets we would expect in a typical system. We can also examine what the chemical and molecular content of the gas is like around the protoplanet and build a picture of what atmospheres are like on very young planets. These results will provide essential evidence for theoreticians trying to fill in the gaps about how planets grow.

  3. Scott Sheppard:

    In the Solar System's youth, the Sun was surrounded by a rotating disk of gas and dust from which the planets were born. It is believed that a similar gas-and-dust disk surrounded Saturn during its formation, the fact that these newly discovered moons were able to continue orbiting Saturn after their parent moons broke apart indicates that these collisions occurred after the planet formation process was mostly complete and the disks were no longer a factor.

  5. Askia Muhammad:

    I gave the original disk to him and in a sense swore myself to secrecy because I had quietly made a copy for myself, it’s my picture, it’s my art, and it’s my intellectual property. I owned it and I wanted to keep it.
