For the first time, astronomers have detected a multiple star system in the first stages of its creation. A research team led by Jaime Pineda, a researcher at the Institute for Astronomy in Switzerland, said that Very Large Array (VLA) and the Green Bank Telescope (GBT) helped them see the multiple star system in its early creation stages.
The team looked towards a dense core of gas called Barnard 5, where younger stars are developing in the constellation Perseus, and 800 light-years from Earth. B5 harbors a young protostar and a triumvirate of dense condensations.
