It is amazing that science and technology came so far that we can detect T-Tauri stars and proto-planetary disks with gaps. Along with Kepler telescope we are detecting Earth-size and Super Earths in the universe. We had detected a Super Earth within 13 light years that could be habitable for life.
The dust cloud and the young star offers a glimpse of our own Solar System and it planets 4.6 billion years ago. I am not sure what Spectral class the star is in but like Earth, in billions of years, a habitable planet could have life and perhaps a complex civilizations, with trillions of stars just in the Virgo Cluster of galaxies, there is likely life or even intelligent beings else.
Our technology could destroy us (Nuclear Weapons)
but technology is also good, it just depends on how we use it.
