Caption: HD 98800 planetary system, artwork. The artwork is based on observations made in infrared with the Spitzer Space Telescope (SST). There are four stars in this system, paired off into two doublets or binaries. One set is in the background at upper right. The other pair (foreground) has a dust disc around it, from which planets might form. There are two bands in the disc, the inner one at the Sun-Mars distance, and the other at the Sun-Jupiter distance. HD 98800, which is some 10 million years old, is 150 light years from Earth, in the constellation of Hydra.
