Oxygen. We breathe it, yes. Often though, people forget about everything else that it does. We decided to list what would happen if we lost ALL oxygen on the planet for just 5 seconds. This will amaze you.
Everyone would immediately get sunburns.
Molecular oxygen in the air protects our skin against the ultraviolet rays from the sun! Somebody PLEASE pass me the aloe vera, NOW!
The day time sky would suddenly get dark!
With fewer particles in the air, there are less particles to bounce light off, resulting in an almost black sky.
Untreated pieces of metal would literally weld themselves together.
The only thing preventing metal from welding together on contact is a layer of oxidation. Fingers crossed you aren’t standing near this and it goes on you!
The Earth’s crust would crumble!
Did you know, oxygen makes up around 45% of the Earth’s crust? Boom, that would be gone! Unless you’re kick ass at driving a limo. ( Sorry if you haven’t seen the movie ’2012′ )
Your inner ear would explode.
Ouch! Sounds painful. This is because we would lose about 21% of the air pressure! By the way, we probably wouldn’t look as cute as this puppy when it happens.Click here for reuse options!
