Offbeat: It rains 'alcohol' at this place in the universe! NASA gave information!
India's Chandrayaan-3 mission is actively exploring the mysteries of the Moon. The mission's rover has made several discoveries in just a few days, including the presence of aluminum, sulfur, iron, chromium, titanium, magnesium, silicon, and oxygen. This exploration is ongoing, and there is still much to be uncovered. However, did you know that there is a place on earth where it "rains" from alcohol? NASA revealed this interesting fact some time back.
NASA said that liquids like water and ice continuously shower on this celestial body. This makes the entire planet appear to be covered in alcohol. In fact, alcohol exists in gaseous form on this planet, specifically in the form of propane. It is important to note that this alcohol is not suitable for consumption, and it is located so far from Earth that any idea of bringing it to Earth is entirely hypothetical.
The location in question is close to the center of our galaxy, where stars are born. It has been named Sagittarius B2. According to NASA, this place, previously unknown to the world, is attractive due to the presence of a giant black hole in our galaxy. It is about 170 light-years away from Earth. The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) telescope first discovered it in 2016, and NASA has been keeping a close eye on it ever since.
According to NASA, this place is very unique, and very few people knew about it earlier. Chinese scientists have also done research on this, which states that Sagittarius B2 contains a huge molecular cloud of gas and dust whose mass is about three million times more than the Sun. It is incredibly extensive with a reach of approximately 150 light-years. The presence of alcohols such as ethanol and methanol is unusual as it is generally unusual to find both forms of alcohol in the same location.
In short, while Chandrayaan-3 continues its exploration of the Moon, fascinating discoveries are being made on the Moon and in the depths of our galaxy, which are revealing the secrets of our universe.
