In a study published on Friday in Science Advances, Nicolas Biver of the Paris Observatory in France said a comet is spewing out large amounts of alcohol every second, equivalent to about 500 bottles of wine.
According to ABC News, it is the first time that ethyl alcohol was found in a space rock. Ethyl alcohol is the same type that can be found in alcoholic beverages. Aside from the mentioned molecule, Biver's team also found traces of formaldehyde and other elements considered to be poisonous.
First discovered in August 2014 by an amateur astronomer from Australia named Terry Lovejoy, the comet was formally named C/2014 Q2, commonly called "Comet Lovejoy." Studies reveal that Comet Lovejoy was one of the most active and significantly brightest comets when at its peak. more >>
