Space Star (SS) anomalies in nd and pd breakup reactions below 20 MeV were reported since 1989, but their origin has not been found yet. We have considered two conditions for the SS anomalies: condition (a) where three outgoing nucleons form an equilateral triangle and condition (b) in which the triangle is perpendicular to the beam axis. The condition (b) was investigated by our previous systematic experiments on pd breakup. In the present study, we started systematic experiments for the condition (a).
