Method of making oxygen from water in zero gravity raises hope for long-distance space travel

Moscow (Sputnik) Jul 16, 2018 According to a new study, scientists have cracked one of most challenging obstacles to deep space travel: how to ensure that astronauts have enough fuel, air and water for the trip. Their proposed method involves "photo catalysts" that can split or recombine water molecules. The emptiness of space and the vast distances between locations pose huge and unique challenges to space travel. One
