Amino acids? Interstellar molecules are branching out

25 septiembre 2014

Scientists have for the first time detected a carbon-bearing molecule with a ‘branched’ structure in interstellar space. The discovery of iso-propyl cyanide opens a new frontier in the complexity of molecules found in regions of star formation, and bodes well for the presence of amino acids, for which this branched structure is a key characteristic.
