Researchers led by Dr. Amornrat Aungwerojwit studied the impact of white dwarfs on planetary systems, revealing how their immense gravity shatters celestial bodies into dust. Prof. Boris Gaensicke noted the complexity of these systems, based on observations of three different white dwarfs exhibiting varying behaviors. The study, spanning 17 years, showed how stars' brightness changes, shedding light on disruptive processes. Gaensicke highlighted unpredictability in these systems, while also discussing the potential fate of our solar system. The findings were published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
