Default Sugar in space 'proves aliens'

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage...cle1971518.ece

SCIENTISTS have found SUGAR in deep space — and say it points to the existence of aliens.

The organic molecule directly linked to the origin of life was detected 26,000 light-years from Earth, where stars are being born.


It was found using a radio telescope in the French Alps by a team including UK astronomer Dr Serena Viti, of University College London.


Previously the molecule, glycolaldehyde, had been detected only towards the centre of the galaxy where conditions are thought too extreme for life.

Dr Viti said: “This is an important discovery.”
