We measured pd breakup cross section at Ed = 19 MeV (E/A = 9. 5 MeV) at Star configuration at 120° ≤ inclination angle α ≤ 180°, i. e. apart from Space Star configuration (α = 90°), and found that pd Star cross section at 120° ≤ α ≤ 180° agree with pd calculation, contrary to Köln data. By our systematic experiments on Star configurations so far and recent reliable pd calculations, existence of Space Star anomaly has been established in pd breakup at E/A = 9. 5 and 13 MeV. Also it has been confirmed that no anomaly exist at Star configurations apart from Space Star.
