UV-irradiated amorphous ice behaves like liquid at low temperatures
30-September-2017

Ice analogs mimicking interstellar ice behave like liquids at temperatures between –210°C and –120°C according to Hokkaido University researchers. This liquid-like ice may enhance the formation of organic compounds including prebiotic molecules and the accretion of dust to form planets.
