Abstract

A recently published review paper summarizes our current understanding of the origin of the simplest chemical species in the Universe, synthesized soon after the epoch of recombination about 400,000 years after the Big Bang. These primitive molecules constituted the cooling agents that allowed the primordial gas to form the first stars, in turn producing the heavy elements on which our life is based.
