    Default organics on Ceres



    https://phys.org/news/2018-06-ceres-...t-thought.html

    looks like every planet has them.
    (yes, Ceres is a planet. )

    Very interesting nFA.

    It seems more and more organics are being discovered out there.

    Well.... they should be everywhere. What would be more interesting is WHAT organics are WHERE. After all methane counts as an organic and Jupiter has lots of the stuff.

    https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley....9/2018GL077913

    Plain Language Summary
    Organics were recently detected on the dwarf planet Ceres with infrared spectroscopy. The origin of these organics is, as yet, unknown. Using laboratory spectra of terrestrial and extraterrestrial (meteorite‐derived) organic materials with known composition, we reanalyze the Ceres spectra to constrain composition and abundance of those organics. Such constraints could help us discern whether these organics formed on Ceres or were delivered by an impactor.
    So the key here is composition to give a clue where formation took place.

    I think time will show that organics are very common all over. As nFA says, the trick will be to discover where they are formed and their composition.
