How Necessary is Oxygen?

May 3, 2002 12:25 PM

From Moby's weblog;

isn't it true that at one point the earth might have been covered in life that didn't breathe oxygen? oxygen is very caustic. how interesting that life on earth has developed to sustain itself with a caustic gas. maybe there's life elsewhere that can breathe ammonia or chlorine or methane?

it would be hard to have a dinner party and invite someone who breathed ammonia. they would probably die. and providing a dinner party environment wherein a space-alien dies is very rude indeed.

i believe that martha stewart addresses this in one of her books.
