Origin Of Oxygen In Earth’s Atmosphere

By H2 & The Muse, from our upcoming book, “Fuel From Heaven: The Solution To Pollution”

Have you ever wondered how the oxygen we breath became a part of the air we breath? Every time we hear scientists try to explain how oxygen became 21% of Earth’s atmosphere they say that blue green algae turned carbon dioxide in the air into oxygen as part of the photosynthesis process of life.

While on a walk in the Colorado mountains on March 8, 2016, a contrary thought came to mind about the origins of oxygen in the Earth’s atmosphere. In a previous blog from October of 2012, I explained an original thought that I had Summer 2005, about how water came from within the Earth instead of from comets bombarding the Earth. Here is a brief review… The solar wind is rich in hydrogen gas. The hydrogen gas absorbed and adsorbed into the molten salts and metals within the early Earth. This hydrogen was gradually released from within the Earth, as it cooled the first one to three billion years after it was originally formed. When the hydrogen escaped from within the Earth, it reacted with metal oxides and salts in the Earth’s crust releasing the oxygen from their molecular bonds. Oxygen combined with the hydrogen molecules to form water (H2O)!

Approximately 46% of the Earth’s crust is oxygen. Most of the oxygen in the Earth’s crust is bound to other elements like silicone, aluminum, magnesium, iron, nickel, titanium, etc.. Now here is where we differ from conventional thinking! Instead of blue green algae and other plants turning the CO2 in the early Earth’s atmosphere, into most all of the oxygen present today… It was hydrogen that leached the oxygen from rocks within the Earth’s crust to form water which eventually filled the oceans.

Hydrogen disassociates from water at high temperatures (2000+ F). Back when the Earth had very little atmosphere, water vapor reacted with lava, and water separated into hydrogen and oxygen.  Massive volcanos and exposed magma turned vast amounts of water vapor from within the Earth into trillions and trillions of tons of oxygen. Oxygen is heavy enough that it stays close to the Earth’s surface, becoming part of Earth’s atmosphere. Hydrogen being the lightest element, was not heavy enough to stay on Earth and was released to space. Therefore, we (H2 & The Muse) believe that HYDROGEN, which we call “FUEL FROM HEAVEN”, is the major reason that there is oxygen in the Earth’s atmosphere, compared to the amount of oxygen that the little blue green algae contributed to Earth’s atmosphere by working overtime to rid the Earth of CO2.

According to Encyclopedia Britannic, “The total mass of Earth’s atmosphere is about 5.5 quadrillion tons, or roughly one millionth of Earth’s mass.”


According to NASA, “Earth’s atmosphere is composed of air. Air is a mixture of gases, 78% nitrogen and 21% oxygen with traces of water vapor, carbon dioxide, argon, and various other components.”

According to the Smithsonian Institute, “Earth’s early atmosphere contained only small amounts of free oxygen, probably produced entirely by the reaction of sunlight with water vapor from volcanoes. The oxygen-rich atmosphere that evolved later, and upon which oxygen-breathing life now depends, was a result of the origin of photosynthesis. During the Precambrian, vast numbers of single-celled algae and cyanobacteria living in the seas eventually released enough oxygen to transform the environment. The oldest evidence of cyanobacteria dates to 2.7 billion years ago, although oxygen did not begin to build up in the environment until about 2.3 billion years ago.
