It's a significant finding in the search for signs of extraterrestrial life.

According to astronomers using the National Science Foundation's Green Bank Telescope,  evidence of prebiotic molecules have been discovered in interstellar space — the first such evidence unearthed. The finding, according to experts, could increase the odds of discovering life outside of our own solar system.
