Organic Molecule Detection Using the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy
Team members ordered filters and GRISMS for the UCLA First Light Infrared Test Experiment Camera (FLITECAM) instrument to carry out Astrobiological research on the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA). The fruits of this work should occur in 2006 and will allow detection in space of dust composed of organic compounds.
