Complex organic molecules - interstellar to planetary?
  Astronomy and astrophysics

Friday 24 October 2014
from 10:30 to 11:30
at FD41
Speaker : Eva Wirström (Onsala Space Observatory)
Abstract : The presence of organic molecules in the interstellar medium has been known since the 1970’s, but their complexity and the range of environments where they are found continues to increase. In tandem, theories for interstellar chemistry have become more elaborate in order to explain observations. In this talk I will present the evolving theory of complex molecule formation and show recent observational results that might challenge previous paradigms. I will also discuss how molecular isotopic ratios can be used to trace the origin of organic Solar System matter to typical interstellar conditions.
