Spitzer Observations of η Corvi: Evidence at ~1 Gyr for an LHB-Like Delivery of Organics and Water-Rich Material to the THZ of a Sun-Like Star
We present Spitzer evidence for a KBO's worth of warm dust in the THZ of the nearby ~1.4-Ga-old Eta Corvi system. Coupled with ongoing production of a large amount of cold KB dust at ~150 AU, we find good evidence for an ongoing LHB in this system.
