Scientists have found the biggest and oldest reservoir of water ever—so large and so old, it’s almost impossible to describe.

The water is out in space, a place we used to think of as desolate and desert dry, but it's turning out to be pretty lush.

Researchers found a lake of water so large that it could provide each person on Earth an entire planet’s worth of water—20,000 times over. Yes, so much water out there in space that it could supply each one of us all the water on Earth—Niagara Falls, the Pacific Ocean, the polar ice caps, the puddle in the bottom of the canoe you forgot to flip over—20,000 times over.

The water is in a cloud around a huge black hole that is in the process of sucking in matter and spraying out energy (such an active black hole is called a quasar), and the waves of energy the black hole releases make water by literally knocking hydrogen and oxygen atoms together.


This quasar is literally pumping out water vapor at a fantastic rate I am sure it will get more massive.

But when I read this article I was blown away. then I remember the Bible mentions God at some time after the beginning of his way there were fountains of water.

Prov 8:22-24 ¶ The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.
I would not doubt one bit if this is one of those fountains of water.

I wonder if this is going to add to the fear of sea level rise ......just saying :>)

This is why it is dangerous (imho) to close your mind off to subjects in reality, especially regarding the universe.

We just don't know enough to deny or claim anything. The arrogance that comes with such...

We are clueless to the universes origin and reason for existing. Let alone EVERYTHING that exists within it.

We are one tiny marble, amongst infinity.

Amazing find, the future has much to teach.

Water should be abundant, the most abundant element is Hydrogen, thats halfway to water.

Thing is is it liquid and potable…

I think the reference in the bible to fountains of water refers to the enormous subsurface reservoirs deep in the earth.

The ones that 'spring up' and flood the world every time there is a huge impactor event.

The Big Flush, or something like that

The article is from 2011 and has been posted before.

Still fascinating nonetheless.

Aside from the lousy attempt to twist this into legitimizing the Bible, this is pretty interesting. It's not the first time we've discovered massive 'clouds' of water in space, though it is the largest such discovery yet.

You'll probably get a better response if you leave the Bible stuff out, next time, and just stick to the subject at hand. Religion has no place in the science and technology forum.

I would. The text you are qouting is refering to a time when there were NO fountains of water on Earth yet. It is not refering to a huge water reservoir in space, at all.

It's a fascinating thought. When the Earth was first formed, there wasn't any water, but there would have been a core, mantle, fault lines and plate tectonics. Imagine as various comets hit the planet, water started forming lakes, oceans, percolating into the fault lines, forming hot vents, steam volcanoes, hot springs and geysers.

I wonder what that quasar would look like? Billions of blocks of frozen ice glinting and shimmering under the rapidly rotating energy beam of a quasar?

Very cool.

Even if it is old news. some of us have not heard of it,
me being one...lol

Would that be heavy water or would it be drinkable?

God is so nice to put that fountain where we can't use it.

And about 13 billion years in the past.

The solution is an international network of desalination plants and water pipelines. There's more water on Earth than we can ever use or need. We just have to start treating it as a priority.

Who knows maybe the guys at CERN can collides some hydrogen and oxygen together and make water.

Heavy water is water where the normal hydrogen is replaced to a lesser or greater degree with an isotope of hydrogen with an extra neutron. Chemically or biologically there is no difference between heavy water and normal water. you could drink a barrel of it and not know the difference. it is not poisonous or radioactive.

Where do you get the extra hydrogen and oxygen to make more water than there already is present on Earth?

Also, mixing H and O in the proper ratio and then lighting it on fire, creates water.

water in space in our Helio system boils then the disublimates then freezes into ice crystals.

Now they say this is a vapour cloud and obviously it is not freezing as it does in our Helio system. so we will have to rethink that space and other systems differ from our known Helio system.

I am sure glad no one knows how to ignite water. It would literally melt this planet with a fervent heat in a matter of minutes.
