Artist's impression of the hot molecular core discovered in the Large Magellanic Cloud
This artist’s impression shows the molecules found in a hot molecular core in the Large Magellanic Cloud using ALMA. This core is the first such object to be found outside the Milky Way, and it has significantly different chemical makeup to those found in our own galaxy.
