Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy detects Universe’s first molecule in space

The researchers have finally detected the most ancient type of molecule in our universe in space for the first time ever. They used NASA’s Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) to detect helium hydride in a planetary nebula NGC 7027 about 3,000 light-years away from Earth. Helium hydride ion (HeH+) was the first molecule that ..

Helium hydride ion to be the first molecule detected in space

NASA’s flying observatory SOFIA has detected Helium hydride ion (HeH+), the first molecule that formed almost 14 billion years ago towards a planetary nebulae. It is the first type of molecule that formed in the universe after the Big Bang. At that time, ionised hydrogen and neutral helium atoms reacted to form Helium hydride ion. ..
