Oxygen was obtained using a device installed onboard the Perseverance planetary rover
NASA specialists managed to get oxygen from the atmosphere of Mars for the first time.
This is stated on the website of the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
The oxygen was obtained using a device installed onboard the Perseverance planetary rover. According to experts, " the demonstration of this technology is just beginning.вЂќ
Thanks to this method, it will be possible to obtain and store oxygen on Mars in the future. This will be a big step towards improving manned flights to this planet.
According to NASA, science fiction may soon become a reality, because perhaps one day, such devices will provide astronauts with breathable air.
With the help of MOXIE, we have so far received about 5 grams of oxygen вЂ” about 10 minutes of breathing for one astronaut.
It is assumed that this way you can get up to 10 grams of oxygen per hour.
We also wrote earlier that the Perseverance rover, which successfully landed on Mars on February 18, showed the first high-resolution color image.
