Chai and Why? Astrochemistry: Exploring the outer space laboratory Arnab Bhattacharya   |   added on Nov 04, 2011    |    India Amazing chemical reactions happen in clouds of gas and dust that lie between the stars. These molecular clouds are billions of km across with cold atoms and molecules well-spaced and hit by cosmic rays. How do we know what molecules are there? What kind of chemical reactions dominate when it is so cold and rare?
