Using new technology at the telescope and in laboratories, researchers have discovered an important pair of prebiotic molecules in interstellar space.
The record-setting close approach of an asteroid on February 15 is an exciting opportunity for scientists, and a research team will use National Radio Astronomy Observatory and NASA telescopes to gain a key clue that will help them predict the future path of this nearby cosmic neighbor.
