Imagine the future when the universe becomes so advanced and astronauts can make their own oxygen, fuel and water from lunar rocks and soil. Is this possible? Well yes. The key motivation of these experiments is the fact that almost half the moon, by weight, is made of oxygen – the singular most important element that we care about the most.
The above may seem ludicrous but already there is a chance of it becoming reality. Representatives from NASA space centres, and engineers from the Canadian and German space agencies, have made a well motivated travel to the site, making this field test a true global effort. A NASA-developed rover called SCARAB showed how a prospecting rover could dig beneath the dusty lunar surface to process soil in order to extract oxygen. Larger systems could produce oxygen from greater quantities of moon soil.
The challenge is to replicate those conditions as closely as possible to ensure that the test results will be a true reflection of how these instruments will perform on the moon.
