Galactic star formation regulated by interstellar dust

By Daniel Bartels • February 18th, 2015

Interstellar dust is a fundamentally important component of interstellar medium (ISM) in galaxies. The main reason for this is that it can control interstellar chemistry of variously different elements on dust grains and thereby drive the formation of molecular hydrogen from which new stars can form in galaxies. In this project, we try to elucidatemore…
