I woke up thinking about oxygen and how our cells covert the O2 molecule into CO2. I don’t know why I was thinking so hard about it, but I had to go jump on the internet to do some research. Anyway, I found out the following interesting tidbits, which is generally what I expected (although a fair more nitrogen than expected), but it was good to see it was researched by an actual scientist:
- What we breathe in is far from pure oxygen, but roughly by volume 78 percent nitrogen, 21 percent oxygen, 0.96 percent argon and 0.04 percent carbon dioxide
- The permanent gases in air we exhale are roughly 78 percent nitrogen, 15 to 18 percent oxygen (we retain only a small amount), 4 to 5 percent carbon dioxide and 0.96 percent argon
This sent me on a deep dive of argon, but I won’t bore you with that.
Daily Photo – The Temple
This is a photo I recently edited from Burning Man. I think this was the temple 3 years ago, if I recall? I don’t know… it’s all a blur. Anyway, recently the Directed Group Sales go into effect… so I’m securing a few tickets. That’s always a good feeling because tickets can be so hard to get!
