Two wide planetary-mass companions to solar-type stars in upper scorpius
parameter space not obviously linked to binary star formation or solar system scale planet formation. These companions provide insight into the extreme case of companion formation (either binary or planetary), and due to their relative ease of observation when compared to close companions, they offer a useful template for our expectations of more typical planets. We present the results from an adaptive optics imaging survey for wide (∼50-500 AU) companions to solar-type stars in Upper Scorpius....[Show more]
