|Caption||Oxygen. Carried in cylinders, it has helped men to climb the highest mountains, to walk upon the moon, to explore the depths of the oceans and to recover from serious illnesses. It is the gas upon which our existence depends. Inset: Antoine Lavoisier, an 18th century French chemist, conducted experiments with a newly-discovered gas and gave it the name of oxygen. Original artwork for illustration on p10 of Look and Learn issue no 636 (23 March 1974). Lent for scanning by The Gallery of Illustration.|
