The BIMA array studies rotational spectra of interstellar molecules. A molecule
in space or anywhere in a gas rotates and as it changes its rotation -- a faster
rate to a slower rate-- it emits energy. (Dissolve) And with the array we can
tell you exactly what part of the sky, and what part of an interstellar cloud
that energy is coming from.
