  • The spectrum of any star viewed through a sufficient quantity of diffuse interstellar material reveals a number of absorption features collectively called ‘diffuse interstellar bands’ (DIBs). The first DIBs were reported about 90 years ago, and currently well over 500 are known. None of them has been convincingly identified with any specific element or molecule, although recent studies suggest that the DIB carriers are polyatomic molecules containing carbon. Most of the DIBs currently known are… CONTINUE READING
