A French/Dutch team of astronomers, including Stéphanie Cazaux from the Kapteyn Institute, University of Groningen, has proved via laboratory tests that molecules in microscopically small dust particles in space can be directly transformed into gas. These findings may have important consequences for theories on the chemical structure of the universe and the way stars are formed. The findings were
in Nature Scientific Reports on February 26th.
