More information about Harold Linnartz

Harold Linnartz researches the chemical reactions that take place around stars. In spite of the temperatures, strong radiation fields and low densities, complex molecules are formed there. In the lab Linnartz mimics processes that may be able to explain the presence of the molecules that have been observed in space.
