Around a black hole 12 billion light years away, there's an almost unimaginable vapor cloud of water--enough to supply an entire planet's worth of water for every person on earth, 20,000 times over.
The official NASA news release describes the amount of water as “140 trillion times all the water in the world’s oceans," which isn’t particularly helpful, except if you think about it like this. That one cloud of newly discovered space water vapor could supply 140 trillion planets that are just as wet as Earth is. Mind you, our own galaxy, the Milky Way, has about 400 billion stars, so if every one of those stars has 10 planets, each as wet as Earth, that’s only 4 trillion planets worth of water. The new cloud of water is enough to supply 28 galaxies with water. Truly, that is one swampy patch of intergalactic space. Equally stunning is the age of the water factory. The two teams of astrophysicists that found the quasar were looking out in space a distance of 12 billion light years. That means they were also looking back in time 12 billion years, to when the universe itself was just 1.6 billion years old. They were watching water being formed at the very start of the known universe, which is to say, water was one of the first substances formed, created in galactic volumes from the earliest time. Given water’s creative power to shape geology, climate and biology, that’s dramatic.

Derp, good point. I should have read the article again.edit on 8/6/2012 by AkumaStreak because: (no reason given)
But what percent of the Earth is water? Not just the surface of the Earth, but the actual mass of the Earth? Scientists calculate that the mass of the oceans on Earth is 1.35 x 1018 metric tonnes, which is 1/4400 the total mass of the Earth. In other words, the oceans are 0.02% of the total mass of the Earth.

Its not water...its life.

The sperm of the universe has been discovered amongst the human populace of the earth, now, follow to see which planet/egg, it impregnates for either…the new life….or…..more life, as the universe is nothing but a twisted, entity, both, male and female.
Could it be that this is the very first planet in the galaxy, and the destiny of humans is to move forward and transform planets for habitation for future planets?
Is this the last planet ,and the humans destiny is to find out that they have already been on theses planets, as they already have discovered that theses past planets once held water.
'More sperm Than You Can Imagine'
The humans are witnessing your so-called god sperms traveling in your universe,looking for an planet egg...its how life started on this planet.................................i wonderr whats inside the water?
