Seeding Planets with Interesting Chemistry
The most massive stars in a cluster of stars have a tremendous impact on the formation and environment of the rest of the cluster, including the less-massive stars and their planets. The massive young stars are surrounded by “hot cores” that include copious organic material that later may be spewed into interstellar space by stellar winds and other processes. This can help “seed” star-forming regions with some of the chemicals found by the Green Bank Telescope (GBT) and other telescopes.
