Astrochemistry

Astrochemistry is the study of chemical elements and molecules in the universe and their interaction with each other via radiation. It is again an interdisciplinary which contains Chemistry and Astronomy. The research in this area includes gathering of the spectroscopic information from air, ground and space to recreate the identical environment to space and study on it.

The Astrochemistry Lab which is located in the Space Science and Astrophysics Branch (SSA) of the Space Science and Astrobiology Division(SSA) at NASA’s Ames Research Center(ARC) mainly researches upon the physical and the chemical properties of interstellar polycyclic hydrocarbons aerosols in the planetary atmosphere, ice mantles on interstellar grains and surface ices on comets. Extraterrestrial material analogs are produced in this laboratory under conditions realistically close to space environments and range from molecules and ions in gas-phase interstellar clouds and planetary atmospheres to interstellar, cometary, and planetary ices and dust. The materials are studied using analytical techniques such as photonic spectroscopy, time-of-flight mass spectrometry and gas chromatography.
