Planetary Systems

Understanding the origins and evolution of disks around stars is important for the study of both both planet formation and star formation. These disks come in many forms, both as the birthplace of planets and as debris disks. The field of planetary systems also includes the study of planets, both those around other stars and in our own solar system.
