Comet is Leaking Alcohol into Space
OK space, you have my attention. When can I expect it to rain alcohol?
So NASA is currently paying close attention to comet that is close to the sun. They have named the Comet 'Lovejoy'. NASA says the comet is leaking out ethyl alcohol, which is found in alcoholic beverages, and the simple sugar glycoaldehyde. Sounds like Lovejoy has a nice little cocktail it's making for space.
Lovejoy is leaking alcohol equivalent to 500 bottles of wine every second. That's nuts! You can check out NASA's full statement for all the science behind this. I just want to know if we can find a way to bottle this stuff. Tell me you wouldn't want to try some comet liquor?
