    This author evolved a hypothetical idea that everything has a beginning, even the universe. It surfaced based upon a perception by Nikola Tesla that throughout space there is energy. the atom has earned the reputation of being the building block of inorganic and organic matter in our universe.

    Cosmochemistry (from Greek κόσμος kósmos, "universe" and χημεία khemeía) or chemical cosmology is the study of the chemical composition of matter in the universe and the processes that led to those compositions. This is done primarily through the study of the chemical composition of meteorites and other physical samples. Christians, in particular, should be concerned about origins because the study of "beginnings" always brings us back to God's history book, the Bible, for resolution. The chemistry of oil strongly suggests that it was formed rapidly from the remains of plant and animal matter.

"Organic Matter in the Universe" is a major gift to the literature in the field of cosmic organic chemistry. It is a comprehensive, by: Authored by an experienced writer and a well-known researcher of stellar evolution, interstellar matter and spectroscopy, this unique treatise on the formation and observation of organic compounds in space includes a spectroscopy refresher, as well as links to geological findings and finishes with the outlook for future astronomical facilities and solar system exploration missions.

Nearly all molecules with more than five atoms represent are organic. More than once even discovery of the simplest amino acid (glycine) in the interstellar medium had been reported. While later all these reports has been refuted, there is no doubt that this is a purely technical problem, and there are no fundamental obstacles on a pathway to interstellar synthesis of simplest amino acids.

Researchers from Hong Kong report that organic compounds of unexpected complexity exist throughout the Universe. They indicate that an organic substance commonly found throughout the Universe contains a mixture of aromatic and aliphatic components. Astronomers discover complex organic matter in the universe by The University of Hong Kong This is a spectrum from the Infrared Space Observatory superimposed on an image of the Orion Nebula where.

His recent research has been on the topic of the synthesis of complex organic compounds in the late stages of stellar evolution. He is the author of many books, including The Origin and Evolution of Planetary Nebulae (), Cosmic Butterflies (), Physics and Chemistry of the Interstellar Medium () and Organic Matter in the Universe ().

It is surprising then that if we look at the list of the ~ molecules discovered in space, in the circumstellar and interstellar media, that organic molecules (roughly meaning those containing carbon) dominate.

This book is focused on abiogenic organic matter from the viewpoint of astronomy and planetary science and considers its potential relevance to the origins of life on Earth and elsewhere. Guided by the review papers in this book, the concluding chapter aims to identify key questions to motivate future research and stimulate astrobiological.
