Hubble gets incredible image of Beta Pictoris debris disk, distorted by huge planet

New images from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope provide the best view yet of the star Beta Pictoris, including the large gas-and-dust disk that encircles it.

Beta Pictoris is the only star with a debris disk that has a giant planet, which was discovered in 2009, which distorts the view of the disk, according to an Astronomy.com report.
