Oxygen on Moon's surface is enough for 8 billion people for 100,000 years - A scientific study

New scientific studies revealed that Moon's surface has enough oxygen which is sufficient for 8 billion people for 100,000 years. That is after recently invested in the techniques of using lasers, electrolysis, to produce oxygen after separating it from moon rocks and minerals.

According to Professor John Grant, a lecturer in soil and surface science at a university in Australia, "NASA" signed a contract last month to send an Australian-made spacecraft, which will roam the surface of the moon, as part of the Artemis program that aims to send astronauts in 2025 to the only object Walking around the Earth, for collecting rocks that could provide breathable oxygen on the moon itself, because it has an atmosphere, but it is very thin, and it consists mostly of hydrogen, monatomic Neon gas, as well as Argon gas, which is lighter than air, and it is a cocktail of gases that is not useful for the breathing of mammals, primely humans.

- He said that the abundantly available oxygen on the moon is not gaseous, but rather combined with rocks and fine dust that clearly covers the lunar surface and will support all kinds of life in it if we extract it, just like the oxygen also available in minerals on Earth, knowing that the moon is also made up of the same terrestrial rocks, despite the presence of a larger amount. Little bit of material that came from meteorites.

- John Grant added that minerals such as the described very harsh silica, aluminum, iron oxide, as well as shiny gray magnesium oxide dominate more on the moon, and they all contain oxygen, but not in a way that it can reach the lungs.

- These minerals are found in the moon in a variety of forms, in addition to solid rocks, dust, pebbles and stones, which resulted from the collision of meteorites over thousands of years with its surface “consisting of 45% oxygen tightly integrated in the above-mentioned minerals.

- Electrolysis used in manufacturing, such as the production of aluminum, where an electric current passes through a liquid of metal oxide to separate the oxygen built into it, which must be supported by solar or other energy on the moon.

- A Belgian company, CIPS Application, announced recently that it would build 3 experimental reactors to improve oxygen extraction by electrolysis, and expects to send the technology to the moon, containing every cubic meter of its land on average 1.4 tons of minerals, containing approximately 630 kilograms of oxygen.

- “NASA” reminds with its data that a person needs 800 grams of oxygen per day to stay alive, so 630 kilos will keep him alive for two years,” and assuming that the average depth of the moon’s soil is 10 meters, and all the oxygen in it can be extracted, so the extract will keep 8 billion people alive, more than 100,000 years,” according to Professor Grant's calculations.
