Mars Rover Includes Utah Company’s Tech That Could Convert Carbon Dioxide To Oxygen

KSL-TV - A Utah company is in the spotlight thanks to its revolutionary technology that’s aboard NASA’s latest Mars rover.

The tech from Salt Lake City-based OxEon Energy could change the way humans explore the universe. Their scientists and engineers have worked for years to develop a system that will convert carbon dioxide and water vapor found in the Martian atmosphere into oxygen.

The idea is that if you can make it on the frigid planet instead of re-supplying oxygen from Earth, you could have breathable air inside a base for astronauts and, most importantly, as a source of rocket fuel.
