Science Ka Adda | Episode 04: Exploring Baby Solar Systems to Search Our Own Origins

Science ka Adda (Café Scientifique) is a series of short educational videos documented in the native language of Pakistan, Urdu. The goal of the series is to communicate the wonder and excitement of science to a broad audience.

How did planets in our solar system form? In this episode of Science ka Adda (SkA), Salman Hameed talks about the discovery of a “protoplanetary disk” around a young star named HL Tau. This star is only a million years old – a blink of an eye in cosmic timescales – but it can tell us a lot about the origins of our own solar system some four and a half billion years ago.
