No one can go into space without special arrangements for oxygen because there is no air in space outside the earth.
They have to wear a space suit as there is no air pressure. If not, it is a responsibility to save. To get used to being in an airless environment all the time, you have to practice in an artificial airless room in a NASA laboratory for a long time.
The question is, is the earth orbiting in space? There is no air in space but air on earth. How is this possible? Is it an exception? If so, how did this exception happen?
No doubt it is an exception, and not only that, it is a unique exception. At least no other planet in our solar system has an oxygen-rich atmosphere like earth. There is air on earth today, but not at first. Scientists believe that the Sun, Earth, and other planets are formed at the same time.
At that time, there was no sea or air in the world. If it had, it would have been blown away by the strong solar wind of the early stages after the wind came into the sky of the earth.
In ancient times, there were millions of volcanoes on earth. There were frequent eruptions. A lot of steam would come out. Steam contains the elements of water — two hydrogens and one oxygen atom.
Volcanoes also emitted carbon dioxide and ammonia gas. All these are the atmosphere of the earth.
In the beginning, carbon dioxide in the air dissolves more rapidly in seawater. Water bacteria absorb sunlight and carbon dioxide and release oxygen into the air. This increases the rate of oxygen in the air.
Ammonia molecules, on the other hand, split under the influence of intense sunlight to form nitrogen and hydrogen. Thus, the earth’s atmosphere is made up of 8 percent nitrogen, 21 percent oxygen, and a small amount of other gases. This atmosphere has become one of the conditions for our survival.
Other planets have lighter atmospheres. The atmosphere of Mars is very light. Its density is only 1 part of 100 percent of our atmosphere.
There is almost no oxygen. Large planets like Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, etc., have hydrogen, helium, methane, and ammonia in their atmosphere. Therefore, it can be said that only in our world there is an atmosphere for the survival of various animals, including human beings.
And this atmosphere has been pointed out in the Muslim holy book Al-Quran. It has been said:
“And We have made the heaven a roof, safe and well guarded. Yet they turn away from its signs.”The Holy Quran- 21:32
The earth’s upper atmosphere protects the space from various harmful objects or meteors, asteroids, etc. The verse says roof, safe and well guarded, which is completely consistent with scientific research.
