Comet 67P has the building blocks of life and smells funny

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

Because comets are believed to be responsible for seeding complex molecules essential for carbon-based life on Earth, the findings could have implications for how life was kick-started on our planet.
