Name All 6 Orbital Theorists Ptolemy, Copernicus, Galileo, Tycho Brahe, Kepler, Newton

How did the atmosphere form? Hydrogen and Helium went into space, and volcanic outgassing released methane, ammonia, Co2, and Ho2, then the gases are broke down by sunlight
How was the ozone created? Lightning breaks water vapor and C02 and it releases oxygen. This formed the ozone, allowing blue-green algae to grow. Then, the algae photosynthesized and produced oxygen gas.
