Mars bound spaceships will be carrying lighter payloads without oxygens

The biggest enemy for the expedition to the far and wider planet is the weight that the aircrafts have to haul in order to ensure safe travel for the human inhabitants to the planet in question. NASA has been actively working on creating a feasible system that could be installed on the planet to create a sustainable and long-term process of enabling the Oxygen creation on the planet.

If successful the scientists would be able to drop a lot of weight that is carried because of the heavy oxygen tanks that the spacecraft have to carry in order to make the mission successful. NASA is researching Micro-organisms with the help of the Indiana based Techshot to discover organisms that could survive in the harsh climate of the planet and create oxygen.

The Space agency has create Chambers simulating the condition of the planet to research different microorganisms that could survive the space travel and the harsh environment of the planet. Different missions carried out by NASA have revealed the presence of carbon dioxide and nitrogen on the planet.

The research would enable the scientists to create habitable chambers on the planet that would make the future missions easy for the Space agency. This revolutionary study would also enable the scientists to understand the behavior of different organisms in the space and their ability to survive on the red planet.

Scientists also believe that the red planet contained vast bodies of the water on it in ancient times. The NASA’s rover Curiosity found the evidence of such bodies on the planet.

    I little absurd in overall picture… NASA has international space station where every year they spend large amounts of money shipping up food and water/oxygen, then transport down human poop and other waste. Seems like the first logical candidate for converting waste products into oxygen, water, food for humans. If you can’t recycle in low earth orbit or at south pole US base, you have no real hope of having base on mars, developing such technologies would both reduce costs now and in future.

    Easiest place to start may be base on south pole… develop solar panels and wind power raised up on stilts so not buried in snow storms, during summer have the solar power rotate 360 degrees to follow sun, and use grow lights to turn human waste into food rather than bury it all in ice. (Human waste also generates precious heat when you compost it). Cellulose which can be grown from human waste, combined with ice make a construction product similar to concrete, that works well as long as temps are cold enough… allies in world war 2 investigated making aircraft carrier out of sawdust+ice.
