An experimental study of the Ne20 + C12 systems reveals a large cross section for inelastic scattering with large negative Q values at backward angles. The differential cross section is proportional to 1sin c.m.>100° and has characteristics consistent with the decay of an orbiting Ne20 + C12 dinuclear system.
