#18657 Stock Photo of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons, Complex Organic Molecules, in the Early Universe by JVPD
Royalty-free illustrated NASA stock photo of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which are complex organic molecules, seen in the early universe. These large molecules are comprised of carbon and hydrogen and are considered among the building blocks of life. They are common on Earth. They form any time carbon-based materials are not burned completely. They can be found in sooty exhaust from cars and airplanes, and in charcoal broiled hamburgers and burnt toast.Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are pervasive in galaxies like our own Milky Way, and play a significant role in star and planet formation.
