"This is the first time anyone's looked at a hot reaction like this."
"the space between stars"
Well that basically sums up the article. They believe life is formed outside of stars. Negative. Life forms inside the star as it cools and dies, eventually becoming a life hosting star called by astronomers, "planet". Life is a by-product of stellar evolution itself. They would know this if they kept up to date with current evolutionary models of stars, but nope. They prefer keeping safe in their Ivory Towers.
