“seriously though where is it?”

One of those stories you just can’t help but be curious about when you hear it. Scientists have discovered a nebula in distant space containing enough alcohol to fill 400 trillion trillion pints of beer. Now that’s just great. If anyone ever had illusions of alcohol shortage you can put those to bed… or can you? When I said distant I meant distant. Try 10,000 light years distant. The discovery of alcohol in space isn’t new, but this nebula (named G34.3) is the largest collection of alcohol we’ve yet discovered. To put it in perspective the cloud is 1,000 times larger than our entire solar system, you could throw quite the universal block party with all that booze. Maybe one day we can reach such distances and get our hands on all that wonderful alcohol, but the physical realities of space travel ensure that is going to be a long way off.
