    This is a pretty interesting story. Back in 2004 an exoplanet was discovered by direct imaging around a star 25 light years away. But 10 years later, the planet was gone.

    So what they think happened is that two objects orbiting the star collided and we saw the after math of the collision which over the last 10-15 years has slowly disappeared from our view.

    Amazing that they can even see something 125 miles wide, 25 light yrs away, or over 100 trillion miles away. To know exactly what happened is a guess that we'll not live to see it proven one way or another

    "Proven" is a mathematical concept, not a scientific one.

    Science, OTOH, finds the best explanation for all the available empirical information.

    RADIO SIGNAL COMING FROM INSIDE THE MILKY WAY DETECTED BY ASTRONOMERS

    has been detected by astronomers.


    The signal is a fast radio burst (FRB), bright radio bursts that last milliseconds and appear to come from deep space. Because they are short-lived, they were often only identified in satellite data after the signal was recorded. Finding where they came from and what produced them has been largely a mystery.
