  • Space Organics The origin of the organic compounds found in meteorites and interplanetary dust particles is a matter of debate. Laboratory experiments suggest that these organics were inherited from the interstellar medium and predate the existence of the solar system. By using particle-tracking models, Ciesla and Sandford (p. 452, published online 29 March; see the Perspective by Nuth and Johnson) explored the possibility that the organics could have been produced within the outer reaches of… CONTINUE READING
