National Geographic: Astronomers have made a sweet discovery: simple sugar molecules floating in the gas around a star some 400 light-years away, suggesting the possibility of life on other planets.
So who tasted it to verify it was sugar? XXXP
life needs water and adequate temperatures
How do you verify a substance from 400 LY away at all?
Here's Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Sorcery! lol, they can't pinpoint the location because the resolution is low, but they can figure out that it contains sugar molecules? Ooohhhhhhh, my brain. So....ridiculous! ARGHuHuH I think the better explanation is: "We need to find signs of life to keep interest up, and thus funding. So we found something vague. Which was of course a sign of life"
So... Candyland does exist!!!
Oh so that's where Willy Wonka is keeping his factory!
This would be news worthy if it was cocaine instead
haha you would have all these narcs trying build a space ship ASAP
Ahaaa! so that's where that nasty diablo 3 goblin escapes.
It's not literally sugar nor does it imply that there is life at that location necessarily. However, it does show that the carbon-based building blocks of life can be formed out in space meaning that life is more likely out there than we thought.
What happens after we realize there is life out there. Does it just become some sort of extension of animals to us? Even if we find similar creatures to us do we all still scratch our heads and ask what the fuck is all of this shit? And then keep marching on for further life?
Aliens have already started littering Space. We are behind.
We're far from behind, space garbage is actually a pretty big issue for those in the field. http://www.nasa.gov/mission...
Yes, totally forgot about that. Aliens are far behind from us. :D
