There is a comet flying across space that is leaving a trail of happiness behind it in the form of alcohol and sugar, according to NASA. As the Lovejoy comet, which has been dubbed the “Happy Hour” comet, passed the sun in January, it released 20 tons of water, containing ethyl alcohol and glycoaldehyde, a simple sugar.
