bisnis.com, SOLO – The plan of humans living on Mars is likely to be realized in the near future. That’s because researchers set out to build the first city on Mars.
As is known, previous research has been successful in creating artificial oxygen that can be used to build a civilization on Mars.
Mars Oxygen Rover Mars Perseverance (MOXIE) is the name of artificial oxygen which has been successfully developed by researchers. However, MOXIE is still in prototype form.
As life on Mars becomes easier, Australian researchers are now beginning to develop metal fabrication on Mars.
This is because metal is needed as a basic material to make buildings such as homes, cities and laboratories.
However, according to him, bringing the metal from the earth would be very expensive. So they will choose to use the natural resources on Mars.
The planet Mars itself provides at least three main materials that can be used in the manufacture of metal. Actually, no metal deposits were found on Mars.
But researchers will develop a process that processes air from the Martian atmosphere, dirt from the surface, and concentrated sunlight and methods to make metallic iron.
Solar power provides the heat source for this “smelting” operation, while cold carbon monoxide gas provides the carbon.
Carbon monoxide is a by-product of oxygen production in the Martian atmosphere.
If this research is successful, then the plan to make Mars a new planet for humans to live in will be closer to reality.
