SHAO Astronomers discovered two new types of molecules as Megamasers
图1.jpg Since the late 1970s, only three types of molecules have been found to form megamasers: water, hydroxyl and formaldehyde. In a recent work, Prof. Junzhi Wang from Shanghai Astronomical Observatory, together with his colleagues, detected both SiO and CH3OH mega-masers near the center of Se...
