If your superpower of choice has always been to breathe underwater, you're going to love this.
Scientist in Denmark have created a material that absorbs, stores and releases large amounts of oxygen.
Scientists created this material by manipulating the molecular structure of cobalt.
Just a few grains stores enough oxygen for a single human breath.
A bucket full of grains could hold an entire room full of oxygen.
Scientists are hoping to use this material for medical purposes.
This would allow patients who need oxygen in their day-to -day lives to get around without pulling a heavy oxygen tank.
Scuba divers may be able to use the material to absorb oxygen from water and go on longer expeditions.
It's not yet available for commercial use, but research is still being done on the material.
