STUDY CALLS ‘DIBS’ ON SOLVING ASTRONOMICAL MYSTERY

New observations by the Gemini North telescope in Hawaii could shed light on an astronomical puzzle dating back 90 years. Specifically, astronomers have identified 13 new diffuse interstellar bands (DIBs) with the longest wavelengths found to date, providing possible evidence about the presence of large carbon-based organic molecules lurking in interstellar clouds of dust.
