So its absolutly impossible we will ever get there in any lifetime

Before you make fun of it being irrelevant to us right now on earth, this is still a big deal
Because it puts even more to shame those who think that everything on earth is all unique to us
But the fact is, it exists

Which when you look at how big space is, and how it probably exists on other planets, its extremely unlikely we are the only game in town

But this is proof that breathable oxygen is NOT unique to earth!
Also this doesnt mean that is the closest planet with breathable oxygen, its just the first weve found, theres no reason why if we find one closer to us, it cant contain it too.

Finally
i came across this video which shows how unbelievably massive the universe is
when you see that, you realise how small and insignificent we are, and how it is incredibly arrogant to believe we are the be all and end all

No chemical element is unique to Earth. Oxygen makes about 1% of all matter in the Universe and comes right after Hydrogen (74%) and Helium (24%).

Was going to say something similar, but yet the requirements for it to exist in this form is not so unique... if there is O2 then likely water.. these imply with absolute certainty that life, not necessarily intelligent, but life nonetheless, exists!

They have found molecular oxygen in another Galaxy not on another planet which makes it the first detection outside our own Galaxy , as with any Galaxy I'm sure there are planets there with breathable oxygen.

Yes but the point is breathable air is not a unique element to our own planet

I said before on here that if even 0.0001 per cent of planets in the universe were habitable, and of those habitable planets 0.00001 per cent had some form of life. that would still be billions of planets with the potentil of intelligent life -
Its like unbelievable to think we are the only game in town

Good news. I think we all knew there is breathable oxygen outside of Earth. Actual proof takes it to another level.

Molecular Oxygen is not breathable air it's a constituent of breathable air , this Molecular Oxygen has been found in space likely as part of gas clouds in the Galaxy.

I don't think there are many these days who think we are the only oasis in the desert these days and hopefully when James Webb launches we will find many planets with breathable air out there.

In fact almost every mainstream scientist now agrees that its very likely there is someform of life out there

The disagreements are wether theyve come to earth or not

If we can find evidence of life in our own Solar System , the Moons of Jupiter for example , then that for me would confirm existence of life on other planets in our Galaxy and other Galaxies in the Universe , we just need to find the first one.

Given the distances involved I think it's unlikely we have been visited but there may be an intelligent species in our own back yard who either have the technology or have found the trick to slim the distance to visit other planets including our own , perhaps they just pop in every few decades to see how we're doing.

If they haven't been back since the 50s they're going to be mighty disappointed with our apparent degeneration when they return.

How do we know that for sure ? … We don't know the whole universe.

Sorry to spoil the fun but if there is no nitrogen, this breathable oxygen is not going to cut it.

I don't remember seeing anyone saying that "everything on earth is all unique to us", but I suppose they exist.

Probabilities are not facts...

The closest planet with breathable oxygen is Mars.

Elements aren't unique in the Universe as we are all made of the same stuff and from the same origin , distribution may vary but the stuff that's in our Galaxy is in every Galaxy.

Sorry , I have to laugh at all "glorified" headlines and stories.
Does anyone really think anyone could detect anything at that distance ?
Especially with any kind of surety.

That's what I mean. We don't know the distribution of each element. Nobody can tell what percentage of each one is in the universe.

I also leave open the possibility of new undiscovered elements somewhere up there

What i dont get is this mysterious planet 9 - aka planet x that theorists say exists because of weird unexplained gravitational effects which can only be explained by another planet lurking in the vast darkness of space

If thats the case why dont we send a spaceship the other side of the sun looking for it, it cant be that far to find, and if it is in our `playground` so to speak, it should be findable in our life times even if it is far away

So why dont we physically go out and look for it

Cost , it makes no sense sending a mission all that way to look for something that may not even be there , many scientist don't believe there is anything there and planet 9 is an invention of the data or the interpretation of it.

I think it better we send missions to things we can see.

Yes.

You can actually tell the gasses in a planets atmosphere by analyzing the light that reflects off of it.

True story.

Because it's not that simple. Missions going to other planets are calculated pretty exactly and have a pretty precise timeline and trajectory. You can't just send something out to look without having a decent idea where it is.
