Our journey as a human race has lead us to start exploring past our own planet, and out in the great beyond! This is a truly wonderous feat, but we’ve extended our reach a bit further to determine what molecules that are still beyond our reach are. Using scans they have determined that a cloud, that goes by the name of Space Cloud Sagittarius B2, is largely composed of ethyl formate, which is the molecule that gives rum its unique aroma and provides raspberries their fruity taste! Anyone else think Cap Jack Sparrow would spend his life trying to make it here?
What else will we find out in the great beyond?
See more cool things here!
