Organic molecules detected in 5 protoplanetary disks | Digital Trends Spanish

Using the ALMA telescope, located in the Atacama desert (northern Chile), a group of astronomers has managed to map 18 organic and inorganic molecules in protoplanetary discs of five young stars. These would be IM Lup, GM Aur, AS 209, HD 163296 and MWC 480, and the new maps show that the chemical substances of these discs are not located uniformly in each of them, but that each disc is like a " different soup of planetary ingredients ”. These results suggest that planet formation occurs in diverse chemical environments and that, as they form, each planet can be exposed to very different molecules depending on their location on the disk. Planets form in the gas and dust disks, also known as protoplanetary disks, that surround young stars. The chemical composition of these disks can influ...
