Quick Reference

Small particles of solid matter between the stars. They are microscopic, the smallest being only 10 nm across. The dust grains cause extinction and reddening of starlight. Grains in molecular clouds have a thin coating of ice. Atoms colliding with the grains may stick to the icy surface, where they meet other atoms with which they can react to produce molecules.
