In middle school, we learned that scientists accept conclusions when they are supported by evidence. Were it only so simple. Take Richard Hoover. Working at NASA in Alabama, Hoover sliced up a piece of a Murchison “carbonaceous chondrites”, a meteorite rich in tarry, carbon-rich material. A Tempting Science
Unsociable methane comes in from the cold - physics-math - 13 May 2011 An abundant but stand-offish carbon-based molecule has been coaxed into playing nice. Chemists have devised a way to persuade methane to react with other molecules under gentle conditions, making it vastly more useful as a building block for synthesising more complex organic chemicals. Methane molecules are composed of a single carbon atom connected to four hydrogens. This means methane is the simplest of all the hydrocarbons that contain only simple carbon-hydrogen (C-H) bonds.
