Spin-orbit coupling and the related effects of A-doubling and spin-splitting have been well known to spectroscopists for some considerable time. The importance of these phenomena stems from the advent of radioastronomy and the study of the interstellar medium. Identification of the molecules, and the molecular transitions, in the interstellar dust clouds is necessary for an understanding of the cooling process by which these clouds can contract to form new stars.
