Day and night, and across seasons, the instrument generates breathable oxygen from the Red Planet’s thin atmosphere.
BART and MARGE will reliably produce, store, and distribute 50 tons of rocket fuel per year on the surface of Mars.
The fellowship supports research contributing to the field of planetary science and astronomy.
The findings include signs of flash flooding that carried huge boulders downstream into the lakebed.
Thanks to an MIT-designed instrument, a NASA mission has produced oxygen on another planet for the first time.
Following touchdown, MOXIE will brew up oxygen while geologists comb for sediments to sample.
Led by MIT researchers, one of the experiments aboard the next mission to the Red Planet aims to generate oxygen from Martian air.
