According to scientists, the discovery will help us better understand how stars are formed

A team from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Germany discovered a cloud of propanol alcohol molecules located at the center of our galaxy. The largest alcohol molecule ever found in space was also discovered there – in the heart of the Milky Way.

According to scientists, the discovery will help us better understand how stars are formed, reported dir.bg.

The team found both isopropanol, best known for its utility in making hand sanitizer, and normal propanol, the other type of propanol alcohol

The clusters are not far from Sagittarius A*, the supermassive black hole lurking at the center of our galaxy.

The region where the alcohol cloud was discovered is also known as the “birthing room” because it is the birthplace of many stars.

The discovery of these chemicals in interstellar space is part of an ongoing effort to better understand so-called stellar incubators such as the Sagittarius B2 region.

It is very likely that alcohol is key to the formation of a certain type of star.
