Enlarge / The incredible vanishing exoplanet—what models suggest we'd see as the debris of a collision diffuses away. We've not actually "seen" the vast majority of exoplanets we've found orbiting distant stars. Instead, their existence has been inferred based on changes in the light of the stars that they orbit. That makes the 20 or…

It looks like a poster of the famous Hubble Deep Field, marked with white streaks by a child, or put away carelessly and scratched in the process. But it’s not. The white streaks aren’t accidents; they’re the paths of asteroids. A couple years ago, the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope was observing very distant galaxies, some…
