The reduction of the population continued during next hundred years because of emigration to America.

Water abundant in first billion years after Big Bang?
Water abundant in first billion years after Big Bang? | Science Wire | EarthSky

Quote:
This Hubble image features dark knots of gas and dust known as “Bok globules,” which are dense pockets in larger molecular clouds. Similar islands of material in the early universe could have held as much water vapor as we find in our galaxy today, despite containing a thousand times less oxygen.

You know you're getting close when...





I don't have the right car to compete, but I was a part of a 55 year timeline of the 911; mine was the light-ivory 72!
