This is notably larger than the lithium deposits found beneath a Bolivian salt flat, previously considered the largest deposit in the world.”

The CMZ is a massive complex of molecular clouds containing about 60 million solar masses of gas. The Brick is one of those clouds. Astronomers are keen to understand this region better, and the JWST has the capability to peer into the dense region, revealing some of the details.”
