Scientists say they've figured out how to turn moon soil into spaceship fuel and oxygen


Lunar soil, according to a team of Nanjing University experts, might be utilized to support long-term human living on the Moon since it contains alien survival elements like as oxygen and fuel.

The scientists published their findings in the journal Joule on Friday, based on samples acquired during China's Chang'e-5 mission in 2021. According to SciTechDaily, it was the first mission to return fresh lunar dirt in 40 years. According to the researchers, lunar soil might help humans explore the Moon and beyond if they can transform carbon dioxide into other resources on a massive scale, like they did for the study.

The new photovoltaic approach is demonstrated in this brief 40-second video from SciTechDaily.

Of certainly, China's achievements in space are a wonderful thing. It's exciting to learn things that might help humanity live when we return to the Moon, or even when Elon Musk and SpaceX want to inhabit Mars. Even better, a prior report on China's impending lunar expeditions stated that the government was open to collaboration.

The United States and Russia aren't likely to get along anytime soon, and life onboard the International Space Station has been somewhat dramatic recently. Successful missions will very certainly continue to include people from other countries on the same ships and stations, so if China can bring everyone together and uncover useful Moon knowledge, we applaud them.
