Interstellar Gas has Less Oxygen than Solar System

Interstellar Gas has Less Oxygen than Solar System

A probe called Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) that orbits the Earth a round 200, 0000 miles has been studying the edge the solar system. IBEX has made a number of interesting discoveries about the make up of interstellar gases. One of the biggest surprises is that it turns out that there is less oxygen interstellar gases as compared to other gases like neon than in the solar system.

The reason why this is the case is still a puzzle but it is consistent with the creation science concept that the Earth and Solar System are special. This concept is further supported by huge differences between the Solar System and the known planetary systems around other stars. These extrasolar planets also support the idea the the Earth is special since these other planets tend to be super hot.
