Scientists found oxygen in a galaxy 13.1 billion light years distant

Such a process occurred in the early days of our universe, so by studying that process in SXDF-NB1006-2, the astronomers could glean insight into the “origin of oxygen.” Lead author Akio K. Inoue told Gizmodo, “These oxygen atoms we found are a kind of the first oxygen ever produced in the Universe, because oxygen did not exist at the Big Bang. In fact, all elements heavier than lithium are produced inside stars and are spread out the Universe when they die. And oxygen and other elements make up dust particles which eventually make up planets and possibly life on them. Therefore, our finding shows the origin of oxygen, one of the most important elements for humans, in this Universe.”
