Interstellar carbon monoxide (CO) was once first detected in 1970 with the 36 foot diameter telescope of the nationwide Radio Astronomy Observatory! on Kitt height in Southern Arizona. R. W. Wilson, ok. B. Jefferts, and A. A. Penzias of Bell Labs pronounced, "We have chanced on severe 2.6 mm line radiation 2 from 9 Galactic assets which we characteristic to carbon monoxide." quickly in a while, numerous different easy molecules have been additionally saw in house. IAU Symposium a hundred and seventy, CO: Twenty 5 Years of Millimeter Wave Spectroscopy, was once geared up to commemorate these discoveries. The Symposium reviewed the accomplishments of 1 / 4 century of analysis on interstellar molec­ ular gasoline, surveyed the present kingdom of millimeter-wave spectroscopy, and gave a glimpse of what the following 25 years may carry. reports of interstellar CO have revolutionized our realizing of the levels and dynamics of the interstellar medium, the preliminary and ultimate levels of stellar evolution, the chemistry of dense and diffuse interstellar topic and of the sun method, the constitution of the Milky manner galaxy, and the content material and constitution of different galaxies, a few very far away. Spectroscopic stories of CO and different molecules are basic instruments for investigating most of these issues, that are one of the so much basic and energetic study parts in astrophysics. New advancements in instrumentation, together with sev­ eral robust new telescopes, proceed to maintain millimeter and submillimeter wavelength radio astronomy on the vanguard of research.

MCKEE Departments of Physics and Astronomy University of California Berkeley CA 94720 Abstract. CO observations indicate that molecular clouds have a complex multiphase structure, and this is compared with the multi phase structure of the diffuse interstellar medium. The trace ionization within the molecular gas is governed primarily by UV photoionization. Magnetic fields contribute a significantly larger fraction of the pressure in molecular clouds than in the diffuse interstellar medium.
