Throughout the history of space exploration, astronauts have been limited by the resources they need to bring with them. Now, technologies for In-situ Resource Utilization (ISRU), the art of “living off the land” in space, are paving the way for a sustainable human presence in space. Carbon dioxide is an example of an in-situ resource that comprises a majority of the Martian atmosphere and can be used as a source of oxygen for propellant and life support systems.
