AI finds hidden galactic evolution clues in over 100 galaxies. Here’s how.

The interstellar clouds of distant, ancient galaxies are often filled with carbon. This means, if astronomers can trace and detect these patches of carbon, which they call neutral carbon absorbers, they can learn quite a lot about how galaxies evolve. 

Yet, actually detecting neutral carbon absorbers — a process that typically involves finding the distinctive fingerprint of carbon’s absorption lines in the spectrum of light emitted by a galaxy — is tedious. It’s also very difficult. Across millions of galaxies, astronomers only know of a few dozen that contain these absorbers.
