The NASA Perseverance Rover has a device aboard called MOXIE that will convert the air available on Mars into oxygen.
Technology seen as a vital component in preparations to establish permanent lunar base
Billions of years ago, long before oxygen was readily available, the notorious poison arsenic could have been the compound that breathed new life into our planet.
To the surprise of many planetary scientists, the oxidized iron mineral hematite has been discovered at high latitudes on the Moon.
Astronomers found oxygen beyond the Milky Way, in a galaxy not so far away.
William Kaelin, Sir Peter Ratcliffe, and Gregg Semenza were awarded the 2019 prize for discovering a fundamental process in animal life: how cells respond to oxygen.
New chemical process could open up O2 production in space.
The oxygen level in J0811+4730, a star-forming dwarf galaxy in the constellation Lynx, some 630 million light-years away, is the lowest yet discovered in any star-forming galaxy, according to an international team of astronomers from the University of Virginia and the Ukrainian National Academy of Sciences.
The finding shows that oxygen can be generated in space without the need for life, and could influence how researchers search for signs of life on exoplanets.
Newly discovered chemical reaction could generate the gas instead, study suggests
