Spectrum of one of the globulettes taken at the 20-metre telescope at Onsala Space Observatory
08/21/13

 

Astronomers have found that tiny, round, dark clouds called globulettes have the right characteristics to form free-floating planets. The graph shows the spectrum of one of the globulettes taken at the 20-metre telescope at Onsala Space Observatory. Radio waves from molecules of carbon monoxide (13CO) give information on the mass and structure of these clouds. Credit: ESO/M. Mäkelä
