Quotes

The researchers also tested their theory of how vitamin B3 may form in space with laboratory experiments. "We showed that the synthesis of vitamin B3 might be possible on ice grains" Smith said
"Earlier work has shown that vitamin B3 could have been produced non-biologically on ancient Earth, but it is possible that an added source of vitamin B3 could have been helpful" , said Karen Smith of Pennsylvania State University in University Park
"We also performed preliminary laboratory experiments simulating conditions in interstellar space and showed that the synthesis of vitamin B3 and other pyridine carboxylic acids might be possible on ice grains" Smith said
"We think this may be the dominate process for producing dust and boulders on small asteroids."
