Giant molecular clouds are places where stars such as our sun are formed. We know that these clouds are very active, we know that they have a birth point, they have a youth, they have an adolescence, they have an old age and they have a death. And during that cycle of activity in a giant molecular cloud one of the by-products would be stars, the birth of stars.
