Astronomy Science ~ One thing that is a problem and that will haunt astronauts to Mars is the availability of oxygen. However, scientists found Moxie, which is believed to be the solution to the scarcity of oxygen on Mars.

Moxie, or Mars Oxygen In-situ resource utilization, Experiment, believed to convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. This technology will be brought to the red planet using NASA vehicles in 2020. "It will be the first, where we will actually produce oxygen on the surface of Mars," said former astronaut and researcher Moxie, Dr. Jeffrey Hoffman.

Data US space agency said that 96 percent of the atmosphere of Mars contains carbon dioxide, whereas only 0.2 percent oxygen. The research team predicts Moxie can change all the components in the atmosphere of Mars be 99.6 percent pure oxygen.

To change it all, Moxie will collect carbon dioxide in the surrounding and isolating the oxygen atom. Then, they combine the two to be converted into O2 that can be inhaled in the air. With Moxie, NASA is not only able to get fresh air for astronauts but also fuel for rockets.

"The idea actually is, NASA will send two things, an empty rocket and Moxie large size, Mars. It will be sent prior to sending humans to the planet. The mission to produce oxygen machine on Mars takes about one and a half years.

It was only able to produce oxygen for rocket fuel with liquid oxygen to launch and carry astronauts back home, "he explained. Vehicle NASA to Mars is estimated to generate US $ 1.9 billion, the same as Mars Curiosity mission delivery. While Moxie selected, of 58 instruments on offer from a team of researchers around the world. If this technology proves successful, a mission to Mars will be easy to do.

It seems that this mission is very ambitious, but everything is possible "Moon Walk" could be "Mars Walk" someday
