Astrochemistry is the study of the chemical make-up of the universe, and the reactions and interactions that take place in stars and other astronomical bodies. Astrochemists use telescopes to gather and decode data such as the emission spectra of distant stars to delve deeper into the many Things We Don’t Know about these bodies. They also make use of the information that is constantly coming in from space probes like Voyager, that have been sent out to unravel the mysteries of the cosmos.
