The Galaxy's Bar: Sagittarius B2 ~ A huge cloud floating near the center of our Milky Way galaxy. Scientists have discovered that it's basically a GIANT RIVER OF RASPBERRY-FLAVORED RUM. No, really. It contains about 10 billion billion billion liters of alcohol. That's enough booze to get Orion to make a pass at Ursa Major, but the cloud is also packed full of molecules called ethyl formate. This chemical, said to smell of rum, is the same chemical that gives raspberries their flavor. (NASA)
