Have I just found one?

elemental yup! O2 levels are a bit over twice Earth's, so you'd have to eat more antioxidant-rich foods or take antioxidant supplements. CO2 is livable, but some people would feel drowsy.

This is the closest to breathable I've ever gotten:

The partial pressures are nearly perfect except for the oxygen being a bit too thin, but the main problem is that the atmosphere is overall too thin.

do this moon have potential?

Nope, sorry but the CO2 is 98.7% so you'd suffocate and expire. You would want it way way way lower, like 5%

it seems that with the new update we will find more planets with breathable atmospheres.
also in harb stream he showed a terra with breathable atmopshere :)

Hy there...this is my first post on this forum.I play SE for 2 years.I like it very much...it relaxes me after a hard day at work.
Now...I wanna show you one of my finds.I think it has a breathable athmosfere...but it lacks of land mass...its almost composed from water:

ORWO, your planet looks wonderful, but I'm afraid you would die in a few hours. The balance of chemicals in the air is closer to Earth's than many that I've seen, and it's no surprise, since water-worlds sometimes have higher Oxygen content. However, there is that toxic gas SO2 still around. The concentrations on your planet would still be high enough to poison you if you didn't wear a common respirator like firemen use. Just like in some movies, you could walk about without much protection needed, but you would need a small, over the counter gas mask filter the aliens could pop off your face and you'd stumble to the ground panting, out of breath, your eyes melting, and snot dripping from your burning nose until you dropped like a fly. :( SOOO very, very close too!

Great news then! I hope they are still hard to find, harder than just finding a planet with life. Finding one we could live and breathe on should be found only once, in say, like 400 hours of searching. Just my opinion, but looking forward to whatever comes out!

Here's a breathable planet, IF you enjoy -160°F summer vacations. With this vacation package you will enjoy, panoramic beauty of the Frozen Tundra, from the binary-sunsets, to the Ring-Shadow Parties we hold, and always, a clear view of a neighboring but not-so far-off Galaxy for every romantic night. Best of all?! You can breathe OXYGYN(tm) at rates your lungs won't be over saturated or under saturated. Don't worry the smelly CH4 Methane is harmless, the C2H4 Ethylene enhances the mood with its (flammable) sweet and musky perfume in the air.

Always carry your hot towel to breathe through so your lungs and mucus membranes wont become desiccated from the dry bitterly cold air. You'd freeze to death if it wasn't for your heat suit. The H2S is still high enough to make you nearly go blind, you'll suffer, and say you're ok, but you'll give up and want to go inside soon.

The C2H2 Acetylene will most likely be your demise when you think you're safe and decide to smoke a cigarette on an alien world, when BOOM you light a pocket of the welding and metal cutting gas fuel. Usually initiated by intense heat (my lighter) or a shockwave, causing it to decompose explosively, if the absolute pressure of the gas exceeds about 200 kilopascals (29 psi). [would be different at this planet's temp and pressure].  I'd also check the Carbon Monoxide levels (1.71*10^-6) to see if they are OSHA approved. Otherwise... sign here and the tickets are yours!

I found a very beautiful garden world.Too bad we can't breath that air.

Can we breathe on this?

I wish we could. It has enough oxygen and for now I won't complain about the CO2 being a bit high. The hitch is, and most likely in most planets we find, is in this universe SO2 is always too high. You'll have better luck if you look for places were it condensate as snow leaving the air less toxic. SO2 should have a negative exponent.

I'm searching for a planet with a temperature between -75F and 120F, an atmospheric pressure between 0.5 and 3 atmospheres, at least 0.09 atmospheres of oxygen, and under 10 ppm of SO2. The SO2 is the hardest part. I have seen not one planet which fits all the criteria. If you find one, I would love to know where it is. Just post the name of the planet (looks like RS-number-number-number, etc).
Oh, and its surface gravity has to be less than 1.9G.
