Spectral data from the James Webb House Telescope has unveiled chemical substances inside a protostar that trace it’s within the means of forming planets
30 August 2022
A younger, still-forming star that produces so-called advanced carbon molecules like ethanol and acetaldehyde has been glimpsed by the James Webb House Telescope (JWST). The compounds it’s making might be the constructing blocks of future planets.
Such protostars consist of huge volumes of fuel, or fuel and ice, that slowly coalesce into stars beneath the pull of gravity. Advanced carbon molecules, which might act as constructing blocks for all times, have been noticed in some protostar fuel clouds, however a …
