Beer Nebulae?

Nebulae known as interstellar gas clouds consist of dust, gas and plasma are normally in star-forming areas. These materials tend to attract and lump together forming stars.

Gas cloud G34.3 which is in constellation Aquila was discovered. It was 10,000 light years away. It's diameter size is about 1,000 times the diameter of our solar system which consists of sufficient alcohol to provide 300,000 pints of beer every day to everyone on earth for billions of years.

In the center of the cloud is a young star. As the dust consisting alcohol drift near the star, the temperature increase heating up the dust which turned into gas and remained at that state. That is the reason the astronomers can detect alcohol near the star. (
