Galactic Center

Galactic Center Research

 

Because of the proximity to the center of our Galaxy, the molecular clouds in the Galactic Centre have different characteristics than the molecular cloud in the disk, such as high kinetic temperatures, large linewidth, high cosmic ray ionization rates, etc. They are influenced by large potential gradient and are exposed to very energetic activities that are unique in the Galaxy, which influence the physic and the chemistry of them. The study of the Galactic center offers us an excellent opportunity to explore in detail the chemical and physical processes present in the center of the galaxies.
