Comet 67P has the building blocks of life – smells like mothballs and almonds

Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is much richer in complex organic molecules than scientists expected, and until now some of these molecules had never been seen around a comet.

Because comets are believed to be responsible for seeding complex carbon-based molecules essential to life on Earththe findings could have implications for how life originated on our planet.
