Astronomers discover the oldest complex organic molecules in the universe

Using the James Webb telescope, a group of astronomers from Texas A&M University (USA) discovered the earliest known examples of complex organic molecules in the universe.

As reported by Ukrinform, lead author of the study and astronomer Justin Spilker mentioned this to the Space.com portal.

“The molecules we found are not simple substances like water or carbon dioxide. We are talking about large flexible molecules containing tens or hundreds of atoms,” he said.

It is recorded that astronomers discovered these molecules in a galaxy known as SPT0418-47, located 12 billion light-years from Earth, thanks to the James Webb telescope.

“It’s amazing that the universe can create really large, complex molecules so quickly after the Big Bang,” Spilker added.

Given the extraordinary distance to SPT0418-47, the light travel detected by astronomers began less than 1.5 billion years after the Big Bang (the Universe is now about 13.8 billion years old).

“This finding pushes the old record for such discoveries back by about a billion years,” the scientist said.

As reported by Ukrinform, an international group of researchers has made the first image of a black hole showing a high-temperature disk-shaped gas flow due to jet emissions.
