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:
