Chemicals Needed for Life Detected on Second Distant Planet

• Space
The basic molecules required for life as we know it have been detected in a second hot gas planet beyond our solar system.

The planet, which orbits a sun-like star about 150 light-years away in the constellation Pegasus, is not habitable but it has the same chemistry that, if found around a rocky planet in the future, could indicate a world that might support life or the presence of life.
