This sounds exactly like something out of Star Wars. We may soon be able to breathe underwater without having to carry massive oxygen tanks on our backs. All we’ll need is a a few drops of a newly discovered material.

The substance is extremely effective. Just a few drops are capable of storing enough oxygen for a single human breathe. An entire bucket of the material could store an entire room’s worth of oxygen.

This material opens up endless possibilities. Medical units would no longer have to carry bulky tanks and SCUBA divers would also be able to use the material to collect oxygen from the water, enabling them to stay submerged almost indefinitely.

The discovery was made when scientists with messing with the molecular structure of cobalt, an element found with in meteoric iron, and resembles a silver-gray metal.
