Did you know that the universe is a giant cloud of alcohol?
It is composed of the same spirit we might find in any beer, but its composition has not gone through a fermentation process like the drink.
In these interstellar clouds, simple molecules like molecular hydrogen, water and carbon dioxide on dust grains together and react chemically to form complex molecules such as ethyl alcohol.
When the dust grains move toward the center of the molecular cloud, they begin to approach the central star, which is being created at its core, it makes you hot, possibly enough to evaporate some of the complex molecules as ethyl alcohol that ends in interstellar space.
The cloud G34.3 lies in the constellation Aquila and its diameter is one thousand times larger than our solar system. In it there is enough alcohol to supply 140,000 liters of beer each day to every person on earth for the next billion years.
Just do not be very advisable to use, as this beer among its components contain hydrogen cyanide, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, ammonia and other chemicals that are very unpleasant.
