Space Duck - Organic Molecules Detected

Comet

The Philae lander has detected organic molecules on the surface of its comet, scientists have confirmed.

Carbon-containing "organics" are the basis of life on Earth and may give clues to chemical ingredients delivered to our planet early in its history.

The compounds were picked up by a German-built instrument designed to "sniff" the comet's thin atmosphere.

Other analyses suggest the comet's surface is largely water-ice covered with a thin dust layer.

Happy Birthday, Bjork



I think was recorded in 1995, just after her Debut album and and just before her Post album. Apologies for the low quality, but still love this footage - Happy Birthday, Bjork.
