An international team of researchers have spotted traces of an organic class of molecules at the centre of the Milky Way which are precursor to molecules essential for life. It is believed that originally life was based on only RNA (ribonucleic acid) on Earth while DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and protein enzymes evolved later. RNA is capable of performing both functio...
