To get to the primordial b-modes, We need to subtract polarized emission of magnetized interstellar dust
with high accuracy.
Vast stores of interstellar dust
obscure this region, hiding it from optical telescopes.
Despite the presence of numerous extremely bright and massive blue stars, only a very small amount of starlight makes it beyond the obscuring interstellar dust
in both the galaxies.
Today we know that regions of interstellar dust
dramatically dim the light of distant stars, and the vast distances to globular clusters, especially those embedded in the galactic disk, allow the dust to do its mischief.
These ices are common to comets and are thought to coat grains of interstellar dust
that swirl around young stars.
EVERYTHING we see, everything we touch, indeed, every atom of our being, was created in the heart of a giant star over four billion years ago when it exploded into interstellar dust
, only for over eons of time, for it to condense and coagulate into rocks, metals and complex chemicals.
Specific contributions are focused on cross-linked hetero aromatic polymers in interstellar dust
, the astrobiological case for our cosmic ancestry, and a wide variety of other related subjects.
Lau was at the helm of the team who used SOFIA's airborne telescope to take detailed images of an interstellar dust
cloud known as Supernova Remnant Sagittarius A East.
Now, other scientists, using data from the European Space Agency's Planck satellite, says Bicep's results may have been contaminated by interstellar dust
more than at first thought.
has successfully reproduced the processes that occur in the atmosphere of a red giant star and lead to the formation of planet-forming interstellar dust
It has recently been tentatively identified as a component of interstellar dust
A fascinating compound, PQQ was identified as a component of interstellar dust
by an instrument aboard NASA's Stardust spacecraft.
