My newest plot to save mankind...

    Ok, my new theory is this...

    I bet that if someone went up into space with a sterilized jar with an air tight lid and collected some of space; by space I mean like, how we would collect air. LOL.

    Then bring it back to Earth, I bet...that...it would produce water.  smile  That is if you applied some heat to it.  Cause like, umm...space is really cold. 

    Plus, how can can a fire burn in space without it.  I mean, how can a shuttle have fire come out of its' (whatever you wanna call it) if the surrounding space would be enough to extinguish it before it happened? 

    I mean, what if...just if...we could actually breath is space.  I read somewhere about some lady who took a commercial flight if you will, up to space and she said it spelled like burnt cookies.  Well of course my problem with that is, how could you smell anything if you can't breath anything but oxogen. 

    So what if all this time, space is actually some form of water, or what if we can breath something other than water?

    Of course there could be a problem with this which I really doubt, but...what...if....

    You opened the jar and a huge vaccume of space opened up on Earth.  Ooops. 

    Other than that,  I think it would produce something, just because you cannot see it doesn't mean it is not there.  Has anyone ever done this?  No, I don't think so, so they should try on their next mission into space. 

    Since I cannot do it myself,  I hope someone else does, just to see.  smile

    This is a spur of the moment thought. so....yikes

    check it out!  maybe my theory about space being a watery substance is not so far fetched!

    You'd have to be really careful not to bring back a black hole in your jam jar wink

    Student: I'm inventing a liquid that will dissolve anything.
    Teacher: Good. What are you going to keep it in?

      Yeah, see I thought about that...accidentally opening a vaccume up on Earth. 
      I would have to say it just isn't likely.  Funny Joke! 

      Did you read the link.  In short, they took these bugs (if you will) called (I cant pronounce it)...or water bears, into open space and they can survive. 

      See, no matter how tarded I sound...I really think space itself is a waterey form and you can breath out there. 

      Plus, I really like this article because now I can ask the question with something to back it up. 

      a) either water bears can breath whatever is in space or b) they don't breath.  or c) there is air that we can breath in space.  smile

    Sandra - you are missing one tiny little point about this organism:

    "that can suspend all biological activity in extreme environments"

      hey your are killing my moment. lol.  let me be a dreamer.

      How would they know this otherwise if it cannot be tested under the same condtions on Earth? 

      Duplicating exact space conditions on Earth doesn't really do much for the argument consider NASA is not entirely sure yet what it is made of...dark matter that is.  smile

    Actually think the Italian astronomers have discovered that there are enormous amounts of water as ice crystal clouds in some parts of space. My theory is - if a wayward planet were to transit
    these ice crystal clouds, collecting ice, if it were to find a sweet orbit around a sun, (warmth) it could be where the water comes from.
