Speaker: Dr Anita Dawes, The Open University Abstract: Until less than a century ago astronomers believed the space between the Stars, the interstellar medium, to be just that… empty space
These molecules are found in regions of space where Stars and planets are born from vast clouds of dust and frost-covered dust grains
Could the building blocks of life have originated in space? This lecture will focus on our current knowledge of how such molecules form in space and follow their journey through the birth of Stars and planets
