Caption: Dust disc around a star, computer artwork. This artwork is based on the dust disc discovered around the star Epsilon Eridani. The disc is at a similar distance to the Kuiper Belt in Earth's solar system, but contains much more material. The central space indicates that planets have formed around this star. Two planets have so far been discovered orbiting Epsilon Eridani.
