We measured D(p, pp)n cross section at Ep = 9.5 MeV and 13 MeV at off-plane star configurations, including the space star where the star is perpendicular to the beam axis. The experimental results were compared with recent pd breakup calculations using screened Coulomb force, and disagreement was found to smoothly vary with an inclination angle of the off-plane star, α. Further systematic experiments are necessary to investigate the star anomaly.
