Molecules were presented on computer screens, or at the very least with dowels and balls. Thanks to this incredible discovery, however, I'm jealous of how tomorrow's engineers will view and control nature's building blocks.

Pillars of gas, dust, and young, hot stars fill the center of NGC 7822.

Within the nebula, bright edges and tantalizing shapes are highlighted in this colorful skyscape.
