Traveling into space will take place in the future, but humans could prepare for the carbon in space, which could make the experience difficult.
What was discovered in the galaxy?
Scientists from Australia and Turkey published a study stating that there are large amounts of "space fat" in the Milky Way. It is estimated that 10 trillion trillion tons are suffocated throughout the room.
The study was published on June 18 in the monthly reports of the Royal Astronomical Society .
Although people typically "this space fat is not edible and it is disgusting."
"This grease is not what you would like to distribute on a slice of toast," said Professor Tim Schmidt, a co-author of the study
How humans dream of someday traveling through outer space, this study adds Light on the difficulties of it. A spaceship would need to provide the windshield with a sticky coating to survive the journey. This fat, which contains soot and silicates, can be described as dust or sand. Solar wind often blows through the galaxy.
How did scientists research this substance in space?
In order to determine how much "space fat" is there, researchers in the lab have recreated greasy carbon forms that are typically found in the discharges of carbon stars. They analyzed the carbon forms to see how they absorb certain types of light.
This process helped determine the amount of greasy carbon. The researchers concluded a ratio of 1
Future Implications of This Space Study
Previously, there was a lot of uncertainty in the scientific community about the amount of carbon in the sand around the room. This study could be used to determine the amount of carbon in space. This is important because carbon is essential to life and stimulates the formation of stars and planets.
The need to understand the connection between carbon and the creation of life is the next step. Scientists are conducting tests on different types of carbon to understand the amount of it in space. They specifically want to know how much carbon each type of carbon has in space.
"It is made in stars, permeates the interstellar medium and is integrated into new planetary systems and eventually integrated into life," said Schmidt. "It's part of the big story, the biggest story out there."
