Rodger I. Thompson and several of his University of Arizona colleagues have found molecular hydrogen in a galaxy 60 million light years from earth and have confirmed the existence of large amounts of cosmic dust thought to be the source of enormous amounts of infrared radiation coming from that galaxy.
Thompson, Marcia Lebofsky, and George Rieke observed molecular hydrogen in the galaxy designated NGC 1068, one of the most famous of the Syefert galaxies characterized by spiral arms and a small very bright nucleus.
