Double protostars are trapped in the process of forming
In many stars in a binary system, star pairs are linked by gravity, with two components that often have a similar mass.
It is not clear how this system collects and accredits materials. Alves et al. making high-resolution observations of young double stars still in formation. A large disk surrounds the two stars, with each component also having a smaller round disk.
Dust filaments from dust and gas combine small discs with larger discs. Material is preferably accumulated in stars, which currently have lower mass, thus directing the mass to the same level.
The majority of stars are part of gravity star systems like binary files. Observation of the protobarine system limits conditions that lead to multiplicity of stars and subsequent orbital development.
We observe high-resolution observations of cyclic discs around [BHB2007] 11, a recent binary protostar system. Both protostars are embedded in circular discs, which have radii of 2 to 3 astronomical units and may contain some Jupiter mass.
The system is surrounded by complex filamentous structures that are connected to larger peripheral disks. We also observe the accretion and radio beams associated with the protobar system. Accretion is preferred over lower mass protostors, which is consistent with theoretical predictions.
