Last October, the Australian Space Agency and NASA signed an agreement to send an Australian-made rover to the moon under the Artemis program to collect lunar rocks. In addition, they can provide breathable oxygen to the moon.
An article published in this regard states that there is enough oxygen on the soil, rocks, and rocks on the moon that it will not be less than one million years for 8 billion human beings in the world.
Experts say that if scientists could devise a way to take oxygen from the moon’s soil and rocks and make it usable for humans, human settlements could be established on the moon because it is oxygen compounds. But, unfortunately, the proportion of air on the moon is negligible, and the air contains large amounts of helium, neon, and hydrogen.
According to experts, minerals such as silica, aluminum, iron, and magnesium oxides are present in large quantities on the moon’s lunar surface, and all of these minerals contain oxygen, but not in the form that our lungs can reach.
This material has resulted from the effects of meteors hitting the surface of the moon for countless thousands of years. Experts say that although the moon’s rocks contain up to 45% oxygen, it will take a lot of energy to break down these compounds and bring them back to pure form.
Therefore, if oxygen is obtained by managing energy on the moon or a method invented to separate oxygen from compounds by using less fuel, then the dream of human life on the moon can be fulfilled. ۔
