There are Plenty of Twin-Star Systems

The NASA Spitzer Telescope has discovered that twin-star systems, including dusty disks of asteroids, comets and possibly planets, are as numerous as normal one star systems.

It has been know that planets could form around wide binary stars, 1000 AUs apart, but this new study shows stars that are between 0 and 500 AUs seem to have no problem forming planetary disks.
