The Universe Smells...

of Rum and Raspberries, apparently.

An international team of astronomers ' searching for the building blocks of life in a giant dust cloud at the heart of the Milky Way have concluded that it smells faintly of raspberries '


After training an enormous radio telescope at the far distant point looking for evidence of amino acids, they detected ethyl formate, apparently the substance responsible for the flavour of raspberries. The distinguishing characteristic of this chemical is that it smells of rum.

Guess there really is a Bar at the End of the Universe..and they apparently serve fruity Rum punch..

this comes from Ian Sample of the Guardian, so I know it must be the deity's honest truth..

wonder how the fundamentalist types reconcile this with their abstinence and teetotalling and such..? the Universe.. one big drunk...
Wasn't that an episode of Futurama?
...and the universe's mother was a hamster.

You have to imagine the outrageous French accent.
