A giant alcohol cloud found in space!

British scientists have discovered in space a giant alcohol cloud (463 billion kilometers). This cloud is larger than 3,000 times the distance between Earth and Sun…

 

 

Don’t get too excited though! This cloud is composed of methanol (which is toxic for humans…well, most of them!). Alcohol in wine, as well as other drinks, is composed of ethanol.

Second drawback…the cloud is located about 7 billions light years from us… You would need a long (I mean, a very long) straw…

 

 

Too bad for Lord Richard Branson, I’m sure he’d been pleased with propose free drinks for his Virgin Galactic passengers…
