We see a 3D visualization of roughly 300 years of evolution of a massive and compact protoplanetary disk, containing diatomic hydrogen only. The different colors indicate logarithmic levels of density.
The time evolution shows the formation of large-scale instabilities (spiral arms) and clumps of subjovian mass, which are eventually disintegrated by tidal disruptions in the inner regions.
