Three Planetary Nebulae Found to Contain Buckyballs

Abstract:
A group of astronomers announces that it has managed to demonstrate the existence of nanoscale carbon structures known as buckyballs in three planetary nebulae inside the Milky Way.

This means that the cage-like molecules may indeed permeate the Universe, as proposed in several past scientific studies, which means that they might have been responsible for delivering the seeds of life to our planet.
