Scientists have discovered five complex organic molecules near the young star V883 Orionis. At a distance of 1.3 thousand light years from Earth!

With the young star V883 Orionis, an extremely rare phenomenon recently occurred - the neighboring star FU Orion is sharply (in

dozens of times) increased its brightness due toa discontinuous flow of material that flows from the protoplanetary disk to the star. As a result, scientists were able to examine the entire protoplanetary disk of the star V883 Orionis, through which the light from FU Orion passed.

There is ice in this snowy protoplanetary disk.and frozen particles in it. An outbreak of Orion FU heated the ice, causing the particles to be in the surrounding gas. Scientists have discovered organic molecules through the ALMA observatory due to a partial change in the spectrum of light that passes through them from the star.

Most likely, the light passed through methanol(CH3OH), acetone (CH3COCH3), acetonitrile (CH3CN), acetaldehyde (CH3CHO) and methyl formate (CH3OCHO). They are in a ring-shaped structure at a distance of about 60 a. e from the V883 Orionis.

Scientists note that the discovery will make it possible to better know the composition of solid space protoplanets that arise around new stars from a protoplanetary disk.
