Giant (300 Billion Miles Across) Alcohol Gas Cloud.

Astronomers using the UK MERLIN radio telescopes discovered a giant cloud - 300 billion miles across - composed of alcohol!

Dr Harvey-Smith, principal investigator for the study, said: “Although it is exciting to discover a cloud of alcohol almost 300 billion miles across, unfortunately methanol, unlike its chemical cousin ethanol, is not suitable for human consumption!”
