Planets can form around different types of stars


, : Planets can form around different types of stars.

It had previously been thought that planets were more likely to form around a star if the star had a high content of heavier elements. But new research from University of Copenhagen, shows that small planets can form around very different types of stars -- also stars that are relatively poor in heavy elements. This significantly increases the likelihood that Earth-like planets are widespread in the universe. The results are published in the scientific journal, Nature.
