The Perseverance rover may be parked at an overlook to capture any flights by the Ingenuity helicopter over the next two weeks, but it’s not wasting any of its time on Mars. The rover on Tuesday successfully converted some of the plentiful carbon dioxide on Mars into oxygen as a first test of its MOXIE instrument. The name MOXIE is short for Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment. After warming up for about two hours, MOXIE produced 5.4 grams of oxygen. This is enough to sustain an astronaut for about 10 minutes.⁠

  1. Don’t mind me folks.👮🏾‍♂️ I’m just checking if everything is safe in this comment section. (Make sure to tag me if you see any perpetrators!)

  2. perseverance and ingenuity.. taking the human race in leaps and bounds towards the future.. on a daily basis

  3. Everyone complaining obviously doesn’t understand the benefits of space exploration, especially when it’s only half a percentage of the us budget

  4. Space exploration unlocks new technologies at an accelerated rate and also gives us access to more resources which we desperately need to help our planet

  5. 🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️ Humans are so got damn gullible 😂

  6. Im perplexed by the stupidity of people complaining about needing oxygen on earth. As long as there are trees on earth we will have oxygen.
    Needless to say this is a breakthrough. Now there is potentially an option for humans to survive on another planet.

  7. So we can go all the way to Mars and find oxygen and shit, but can’t even figure out how to end racism and police brutality against black ppl and POC on our own damn planet??
