Cosmic Fullerenes Since the discovery of the buckminsterfullerene C60 in laboratory experiments, it has been speculated that fullerenes could form abundantly in carbon-rich evolved stars and, because of their stability, survive the harsh radiation field in the interstellar medium as a gas-phase species. Cami et al. (p. 1180; published online 22 July; see the Perspective by Ehrenfreund and Foing) have detected large amounts of fullerenes in a peculiar planetary nebula with an extremely hydrogen… Expand
