Complex organic matter discovered throughout the Universe

Researchers at the University of Hong Kong (HKU) claim to have solved the mystery of “Unidentified Infrared Emission features” that have been detected in stars, interstellar space, and galaxies. For over two decades, the most commonly accepted theory regarding this phenomenon was that these signatures come from polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) molecules – simple organic molecules made of carbon and hydrogen atoms. Now HKU researchers say the substances generating these signatures are actually complex organic compounds that are made naturally by stars and ejected into interstellar space.
The team of Prof. Sun Kwok and Dr. Yong Zhang used observations taken by the Infrared Space Observatory and the Spitzer Space Telescope of stardust formed in exploding stars called novae to show that the astronomical spectra contain a mixture of aromatic (ring-like) and aliphatic (chain-like) components that cannot be explained by PAH molecules.
The researchers say the substances generating these infrared emissions actually have chemical structures that are so complex that their structure resembles those of coal and petroleum. Since coal and petroleum are remnants of ancient life (does Darren even realize what he’s saying? Look at that, Darren, an evolutionist, in denial, even though he’s reporting on astronomy that is only supposed to support evolution but yet clearly isn’t) and this type of organic matter was only thought to arise from living organisms, the researchers say this suggests that complex organic compounds can be synthesized in space even when no life forms are present. (That sentence didn’t make any grammatical sense. Darren just said that these researchers are saying that stars can make petroleum because it’s believe that it came from [dead remains] of ancient life and because it was only thought to “arise”, wow “arise” nice flowery big word), from living organisms. No Darren, that’s not why they think they found oil in space, unless they are kook scientists and crazed hacks at science pretending to know what they are talking about like you are. And no sane scientist has said they come from living lifeforms let alone ancient living ones as you nonsensically implied with your poor superfluous wording. All you had to say was “SOME scientists claim that oil comes from millions of years old dead remains” and if you had an ounce of honesty in that mind would also have said that some scientists say it is continually being produced by the grinding up rock under great heat and pressure and perhaps also processed by thermophile bacteria to produce petroleum.)
Supporting an earlier idea by Kwok that old stars are molecular factories capable of manufacturing organic compounds, they say that not only are stars producing this complex matter on extremely short time scales of weeks, but they are also ejecting it into the general interstellar space in between stars.
“Our work has shown that stars have no problem making complex organic compounds under near-vacuum conditions,” says Kwok. “Theoretically, this is impossible, but observationally we can see it happening.” – more here
And when did the “fossil fuel” blind guide “judgmental” hypocrites already find this out only to keep repeating their fossil fuel mind-numbing, blissfully ignorant, children’s fantasy propaganda? (more like miserable zombie brain nonsense):
New data: Maybe oil isn’t from dead dinos
Saturn moon has more hydrocarbons than all of Earth’s known reserves

Saturn’s moon Titan has hundreds of times more liquid hydrocarbons than all the known oil and natural gas reserves on Earth, according to a team of Johns Hopkins University scientists, adding to evidence that oil is not biological in origin.
The scientists at the Laurel, Md., institution were reporting this week on data collected from NASA’s Cassini probe.
“Several hundred lakes or seas have been discovered, of which dozens are estimated to contain more hydrocarbon liquid than the entire known oil and gas reserves on Earth,” wrote lead scientist Ralph Lorenz of the university’s Applied Physics Laboratory in the Jan. 29 issue of the Geophysical Research Letters. – more here
Unfortunately Jerome Corsi is a Catholic, which is worse than an atheist, because Jerome confesses the Bible to be true, and God’s word, and even gives out evidence for it, like the Shroud of Turin, yet leads people down the wrong path, down to Hell with his suffer-for-your-own-sins and do good deeds gospel, which is no good news at all. It’s a contradictory impossible path, as God demonstrated on Israel and their endless failure to obey God’s Law, and despite that some boast about knowing how many laws there are in the “first half” of the Bible.
Also interesting is that the Mainstream Science cult is hiding these discoveries (guess why). Is it on Sciencedaily, which shows off stories even from many years ago? No. Though right now they are declaring the fantasy evolutionary tree of Mollusks has just been completed lol. Delusional! Propaganda! Stupid! Waste of time and money that could be used on space exploration and COLONIZATION and exofuel mining, and advanced in medicine (not vaccines or “cures” for sexually transmitted diseases for kids – sounds like a child molester’s fantasy), transportation, computer power, artificial intelligence, software, agriculture, mining, fireproofing, oceanic exploration and colonization, housing, optics, sensors, communications, sanitation and recycling. Not, “Look I discovered all there is about mollusks over billions of years, trust me and waste your time reading this story to become a confused delusional zombie who will only listen to other evolutionists and stupidly laugh whenever you just hear the word creationist or creationism or intelligent design, or Christian or religious scientist.” Nor does Sciencedaily’s sister anti-Christian propaganda site Phys.org carry this story (these sites are almost identical except phys.org has a forum and seems to lack the videos of Sciencedaily).
