Galactic and Extragalactic Astrochemistry: Heavy-Molecule Precursors to Life?
·

Abstract

Dense interstellar clouds contain an astonishingly rich collection of exotic molecules in various states of ionization and excitation, revealing complex astrochemistry. Charged molecules may moderate the magnetic field during star formation. The largest ones, which may be precursors to life, are best identified at 0.5-10 GHz with big telescopes.
