Hydrogen reacts with oxygen quite readily, actually. This is why hydrogen is considered a dangerous gas and there are no hydrogen air balloons anymore. en.wikipedia.org...

In the universe, oxygen and hydrogen are very common, and they often form water molecules. The only problem is that liquid water can only exist under pressure (atmospheric, or under crust). Otherwise it's either ice or vapour.

The outer Solar System is very icy; if you look up the composition of the bodies out there (even starting with Jupiter's moons) they are approximately 50% ice, 50% rock.

So, is it possible that the new Atom Smasher could be maken us some Water instead of trying to create the "start of our Galaxy"?? This is a real question considering the concerns but from I have read, this new Atom Smasher can create a Black Hole to swallow are whole planet?? I would think Water would much safer.


Water can be made by simply burning hydrogen. In fact, your car makes water while burning the hydrocarbon fuel that it uses (that water is part of the car's exhaust).



...As for the OP, I think it has become quite clear that the proto-planetary cloud that our solar system form from 5 billion years ago was very rich in water. As you said, we see H2O (in one of its forms or another) almost everywhere we look. The clouds of Venus, Earth, the Moon, Mars, asteroids, the clouds of Jupiter, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto (possibly), Titan, Encelladus, the clouds of Neptune, in comets, etc.

We live in an H2O-rich solar system. We can't tell if that is common or uncommon for solar systems to have so much water, but water has been detected elsewhere outside of out solar system. Water has been detected in nebulae, such as the Orion nebula. Astronomers recently discovered a Nebula 12 billion light-years away (from 12 billion years ago) that had massive amounts of water:

Comet water was not water but radicals trailing behind generated by electric
static propulsion from the Sun.

Layers of water were not found.
