Module 4 - Follow the Water

Follow the water

Water, it’s a remarkable substance.  We can drink it, swim in it, skate on it and push it aside to make snow angels.  To the best of our knowledge it is an absolutely crucial ingredient for the existence of life.  Water (H2O) is a combination of 2 hydrogen (H) atoms and 1 oxygen (O) atom.  Hydrogen is the most common element in the Universe while Oxygen is the third most abundant element.  This means that while some particular area of the Earth may suffer the terrible consequences of drought, there is no shortage of water within the solar system or the Universe.  

So, contrary to the plots of multiple science fiction movies (The Ice PiratesOblivion, and Battleship to name a few) water is not likely a desirable substance to fight over.
