For the first time, researchers have detected a streamer of gas flowing from a massive outer disc toward the inner reaches of a binary star system. This never-before-seen feature may be responsible for sustaining a second, smaller disc of planet-forming material that otherwise would have disappeared long ago. Half of Sun-like stars are born in binary systems, meaning that these findings will have major consequences for the hunt for exoplanets. (ESO)

If Saturn was close to Earth…

If Saturn was close to Earth…

Except the asteroid belt would collide with Earth, and the planet would be too close as not to do the same. Plus the gravity would be flubbed up and Earth would orbit Saturn.
