Beaming Pyrimidines Part 1

Nucleobases and Prebiotic Molecules in Organic Residues Produced from the Ultraviolet Photo-Irradiation of Pyrimidine in NH3 and H2O + NH3 Ices (NOT OPEN ACCESS) SUMMARY: If you beam water and pyrimidines at low temperature and pressure in a sealed chamber, you’ll produce pyrimidine-based molecules such as uracil, cytosine, isomers of uracil and cytosine. You’ll also… Continue reading Beaming Pyrimidines Part 1

Why Is Pluto Red Part 1

Ice Chemistry on Outer Solar System Bodies: Carboxylic Acids, Nitriles, and Urea Detected in Refractory Residues Produced from the UV Photolysis of N2:CH4:CO-Containing Ices SUMMARY: Using a ratio of 100:1:1 of nitrogen gas, methane, and carbon monoxide at very low temperatures and pressure, scientists found that beaming the gas mixture with UV photons can produce… Continue reading Why Is Pluto Red Part 1
