Amorphous ice and dust grains in the interstellar medium catalyze many important astrochemical and astrophysical reactions. We use molecular dynamics to simulate molecule/ice collisions and predict molecular sticking probabilities. This figure illustrates our simulated amorphous ice slab at 10 K, with red and gray balls representing oxygen and hydrogen atoms, respectively. (Stancil/Lewis collaboration)
