Description: Chemistry is a really important tool for astronomy and it is often forgotten, how to create a lab spectra? How can we find molecules in space? Are there any organic molecules in the galaxy? Is it really possible to make water like the in the Martian movie? What is the difference between Chemistry and Quantum Mechanics? All of that and more in this episode with Kirstin Doney, from the Leiden University.
Astronomy et al brings informal conversations about the fascinating world of astronomy. Ricardo Garcia, the host of the show, picks the brains of researchers, astronomers, science communicators, and physicists about the work they do, how and why they do it, delving into the science but also talking about the personal journey of each guest.
