Stars, dust and life in space

The molecules needed for life to form on a planet can be observed in clouds of dust in space. Some researchers believe that the appearance of the life-giving substances is actually a natural part of the process that leads to star formation.

Science journalist from Science Stories Jens Degett talks (in Danish) to Professor Liv Hornekær from the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Aarhus University about the mechanisms behind the formation of life.
