+ - First organic molecules found on alien world

Submitted by Galactic_grub
Galactic_grub (323491) writes "The planet in question — HD 189733b — is too hot for the molecules to signal life, but the discovery offers hope for understanding future discoveries of Earth-like worlds, says NewScientistSpace. Researchers from Caltech and University College London used the Hubble Space Telescope to peer at the planet and examined spectral signature of starlight filtered by the planet's atmosphere, to identify different chemicals."
