NASA and Case Western Reserve University scientists say they're developing a device that can extract oxygen from lunar low-gravity soil. The researchers are designing and testing components of an oxygen generator that would extract the element from silicon dioxide and metal oxides in the ground. They have designed sifters needed to produce a consistent supply of oxides, but were uncertain how they would work in the moon's gravity, which is about one-sixth as strong as the Earth's? To find...

But recently, subs have started to get friendlier. There is a growing market for personal subs, and many coastal resort areas now have tourist subs that let visitors see underwater reefs and wrecks in air-conditioned comfort. Let's take a look at how these different kinds of subs work. Any sub, from smallest to...

A new oxygen generation system tested between July 11 and 14 aboard the International Space Station will allow the orbiting laboratory's crew size to increase in 2009. The hardware is part of the station's environmental control and life support system and will be used to augment the Russian Elektron oxygen generator. With the increased capability to produce oxygen, the station can better support six crew members as they work and live aboard the outpost. The station currently supports a...
