    Lorentz Center Highlights

Negative Ions in Space

Tom Millar,

ABSTRACT:
Two years ago, radio astronomers detected microwave emission from anions in the interstellar medium. These detections were something of a surprise. In this talk, I shall discuss their formation, highlight areas in which we need theoretical and experimental support, and explain their significance in the star formation process.
