In the latest survey, astronomers sifted through thousands of signals from Sagittarius B2, a vast dust cloud at the centre of our galaxy. While they failed to find evidence for amino acids, they did find a substance called ethyl formate, the chemical responsible for the flavour of raspberries.

I like the part of the article which says that -"Ethyl formate has another distinguishing characteristic: it also smells of rum."
Hmmm --Raspberries and rum now thats a couple of good ingredients for cosmic soup!!
<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre"> While scouring their data, the team found evidence for the lethal chemical propyl cyanide in the same cloud </pre>
Soup with a nasty side effect

i was pondering just yesterday weather erath is the only planet able to with hold intelligent life

that theres one doesnt neccesarily mean theres many

think about the numbers in the infinity theres just one odd zero

then aliens would then be time travellers with a good reaso to hide, not changing their place- time of origin

and besides taking into account the posibilities of parallel times earth could be home to intelligent reptiles, or intelligent dolphin like cratures, thousands of different intelligent creatures

i think we would handle earth better if we took it as something unique which would make a nuclear apocalipsis a horrible horrible crime
