About this event

Abstract

Chemistry plays a significant role in controlling the evolution of the modern Universe. It seeds the Universe with molecules that allow us to understand remote regions of space, control the size of stars and open doorways to biology. This presentation will give a general overview of unique chemistry that occurs in space at exceedingly low pressures and temperatures.
