Abstract:

It is unknown whether or not low-mass stars can form at low metallicity. In this journal club, I will talk about the recent discovery of the ultra metal-poor spectroscopic binary system (https://doi.org/10.3847/1538-4357/aadd97) and discuss its implication on the formation of low-mass Pop III stars via disk fragmentation.
