Is there mercury in outer space?

    In all likelihood, yes. All the elements are formed from stellar explosions that fuse elements together to form new ones. Hydrogen atoms are fused together to form Helium and so forth. Mercury on Earth means that at some point, stellar explosions created the element mercury that formed part of the Earth’s crust. It is pretty much unfathomable to think that the atoms of mercury created by these cosmic explosions only formed on Earth. Mercury is probably a pretty common element in the cosmos.
