"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."

I saw the headline for that story in my morning paper. I hadn't read their version of the story yet. It probably is much shorter than your link.

Thanks!

Sugar and amino acids in outer space, but it's ridiculous to think they could ever find each other.

I thought we had allready established that it does not necessarily take buckets to get beer.

Any sign of the grain nebula?
Though i admit that the beer arguement was a bit hard to follow.

it's more likely to come across a methane cloud and some grain of cosmic dust containing water...presto we get meteorites with life.
happens all the time.

Not joking.

I'm all the time trying to keep up with nicknames...who is...?

Otherwise glio..uh
protocells...cation anion exchange
And looking up those meteorites that had live as in amino-acids and exactly what they contained. So working backward.

or find one that talks back.

"Alcohol in space", now "Sugar in space".

Hmmm....probabilities for the Daiquiri Nebula?
You'll notice it right off....shaped like a giant umbrella.

All we really need is yeast.

Makes one wonder though how Hatupshet ever got to making beer without all the fancy buckets and a yeast-shop in the neighbourhood!
The first coffee drink was raki, a very potent alcoholic beverage.
As i recall palmwine is just a matter of leaving your drink untouched, the longer the higher the alcohol content.
And we have trees that drop fruit once a year, that then ferments on the ground, leaving all of south-africas wild-life drunk as a skunk.

Yah, there's wild yeast on the wind. Leave stuff out, it's apt to ferment.

That's the Marula tree, innit? I remember something about that, I think.

Belgian lambics are the king of beer. They are produced by local yeast populations blowing into the fermentation rooms on the wind.

Yep marula. The ancients even had a special implement, still used now-adays to get the pit out.

Hah DAN :), caught out...huge buckets!
Would that be interstellar wind?

(I'll admit to looking into earth seeds reaching 'outer-space'. If that had any chance whatsoever.)
