The 'Great Oxidation Event' (GOE), nearly 2.3 billion years ago, marks the point when oxygen started to make an impact on the atmosphere, stimulating the evolution of air-breathing organisms.
But new research from MIT suggests that oxygen may actually have been around hundreds of millions of years earlier, in 'oxygen oases' in the oceans. And the team says there's good evidence that tiny aerobic organisms may have evolved to survive on extremely low levels of the gas in these spots.
