Scientists believe existence of party drugs in space points to proof of aliens
Scientists at the University of California Riverside believe that the existence of party drug nitrous oxide, known as laughing gas, in space points to proof of aliens.
Because nitrous oxide has no other use, alien physiology works the same way as with humans, and there can be no other possible explanation for its existence outside Earth's environs?
The point of the news story is that nitrous oxide can be an indicator of biological processes, not that it is a sign of recreational drug use. The headline could just as well said "Scientists believe existence of whipped cream propellant in space points to proof of aliens" or "Scientists believe existence of your dentist's favorite gas in space points to proof of aliens".'NO!' Huh?
