How old is water? We often like to imagine that shortly after the earth solidified in its creation to be this rocky ball orbiting the sun, water came to be on this planet. It predates all biological life on earth, in fact – it paved the way for life to emerge. It is through water that biological life formed.

But new research is demonstrating that the water on this planet may not have been formed on this planet at all, but in fact been floating around in space for a verrryyy long time. So long in fact, that it predates not just this planet, but our very own sun.

Modern science has pegged the sun at being roughly 4.6 Billion years old, so that means that all of the water on this planet was created sometime between 4.6 billion years, and 14 billion (which is where we’ve pegged the big bang occurring… although honestly at all of the fractals in the creation of everything, i hardly think we can put a peg on what is ultimately a timeless thing. We are still experiencing the big bang today, regardless of how linear we think things are).

Basically, this new research describes that when the Sun was formed, it was surrounded by a large disk of rock and ice. Originally, we though that these rock and ice particles were created in the suns early formation stages, but now we are learning that that’s not the case. Those chunks were pulled there from outside, which originally were created in interstellar space.

Water didn’t come from earth, it just landed here like some beautiful alien that brings life to anything it touches.

Water was crucial to the rise of life on Earth and is also important to evaluating the possibility of life on other planets. Identifying the original source of Earth’s water is key to understanding how life-fostering environments come into being and how likely they are to be found elsewhere. New work from a team including Carnegie’s Conel Alexander found that much of our Solar System’s water likely originated as ices that formed in interstellar space. Their work is published in Science.
It is even possible that this water was created by a Quasar, which very simply is an exploding star in space that continually smashes hydrogen and oxygen together to create water in space. Recent discoveries depict a large body of water roughly 20,000x more than the amount on earth. This floating body of water and others like it are amazing, and may be a foundational source of where all of the water on earth came from.

So it’s just water… what’s really the big deal? Why is this important?

Water is ultimately the basis by which biological life comes into existence. It is through water that all life came from, whether it is archeo-bacteria, fish, or even people. Our physical bodies are composed greatly of water, and that right there is significant beyond measure.

If we can look at water with fresh eyes, and see it beyond simply a tool for hydration, we can learn some really incredible things.

With love,
