The post SOFIA Follows the Sulfur for Clues on Stellar Evolution appeared on Universe Today.
A high-flying distance telescope is currently shedding light on where some of the basic building blocks for life may have originated in. A recent study headed by astronomers now at the University of Hawaii, including collaborators from the University of California Davis, Johns-Hopkins University, the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, Appalachian State University, and several international partners, including funding from NASA, looked in a lingering mystery in planet formation: the chemical pathway of this element sulfur, with implications for its function in the creation of planets and life.
