  • Massive amounts of water and organic molecules, never before seen, discovered in swirling, disk-shaped clouds surrounding young stars.
  • Young stars are produce life-inducing molecules, and It probably also happened during the formation of the sun and the inner planets of our solar system.
  • It was discovered through infrared observations of NASA’s airplane telescope, which demonstrates the power of infrared observatories to find simple organic compounds.
  • Celestial clouds collapse into a rotating disc of gas and dust to form stars, the chemical soup of organic molecules was found in the inner regions of these discs.
  • Further studies of massive young stars will help scientists understand the processes creating organic molecules.
