Science20.com is reporting on a Nature article
“Astronomers are reporting that organic compounds of unexpected complexity exist throughout the Universe – which means they can be made naturally by stars.
Researchers write in Nature that an organic substance commonly found throughout the Universe contains a mixture of aromatic (ring-like) and aliphatic (chain-like) components, compounds so complex that their chemical structures resemble those of coal and petroleum.”
“Not only are stars producing this complex organic matter, they are also ejecting it into the general interstellar space, the region between stars….” Here
Going to Wikipedia to research the above mentioned organic substances we find:
“They are also found in the interstellar medium, in comets, and in meteorites and are a candidate molecule to act as a basis for the earliest forms of life.” Wikipedia Here My emphasis
