James Webb telescope reveals ‘cataclysmic’ asteroid collision in nearby star system

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has found evidence of two giant asteroids slamming into each other in a nearby star system. The colossal collision ejected 100,000 times more dust than the impact that killed the dinosaurs

The violent impact occurred recently in Beta Pictoris, a star system located 63 light-years away in the constellation Pictoris.
