"Breathe a sigh of relief on Mars": Oxygen production thanks to SMT stencils

11.10.2023

A future on Mars – unthinkable? Not anymore. This is because a NASA experiment has shown that oxygen can be produced on the Red Planet. A groundbreaking discovery that gives hope that astronauts on future missions can be supplied with sufficient breathing air and rocket fuel.

In 2021, work began on “Moxi”, a toaster-sized device transported by the Mars rover “Perseverance”, which extracted significantly more oxygen from the Martian atmosphere than expected – in total, the amount consumed by a small dog in 10 hours. The developers were delighted, because this technical proof makes human exploration of Mars a tangible possibility in the future.

At the end of the experiment, a significant success became apparent: for the first time, a technology was tested that could be developed into oxygen production for rocket engines. Then with a “Moxi 2.0”, in which the smallest electronic components would have to be installed in the smallest of spaces.

The successes in space travel show once again that technological progress is based on the interaction of high-precision components – starting with the optimal SMT stencil.
