Hahaha, take that you aliens! We humans have built a “toaster size” machine call MOXIE
, short for Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment, which can get us 5 grams of good, clean, usable air for us to breath out of Mars’ carbon dioxide rich atmosphere.
of breath is what we get. A small breath, but a giant wind for human kind. “Moxie isn’t just the first instrument to produce oxygen on another world. It’s the first technology of its kind that will help future missions ‘live off the land,’” is what Trudy Kortes
, who is the director of technology demonstrations within STMD, said.
What’s that?! Hey, I know the oxygen isn’t the 10 grams of oxygen that MOXIE suppose to produce in an hour
or the one metric ton (1,000,000 grams) that four people will need in order to live, without dying from a lack of oxygen, for a year on the Martian terrain.
Stop giggling! Research will help us to get the one metric
ton of air that we need to give to four people so they can breath on Mars.
And we humans will get that breathable one metric ton of air the way we’ve
gotten other stuff which is by gathering data and testing the data we’ve
We humans have a year, about two Earth years, on the Red Planet and nine more times
to get and test the air out of the carbon dioxide rich Martian atmosphere. So, yeah, birdie finger to you, aliens.
We’ll get more oxygen from Mars! Hey, hey, we coming to get our oxygen from Mars!
