2M1207A disc detected at submillimetre wavelengths

First sub-millimeter detection of the TWA brown dwarf disc 2MASSW J1207334-393254

The disc is quite massive relative to the primary brown dwarf. There is the interesting possibility that 2M1207B may lie near the edge of the disc and may have been formed through disc fragmentation.
