At the recent engineering science and Technology Forum: deep space exploration science, technology and Application Conference, researcher Guo linli of 508 Institute of the Fifth Academy of Astronautics introduced the latest progress in China’s lunar soil oxygen production technology

researcher Guo linli pointed out that melting electrolysis method can be used to produce oxygen on the moon. This technology can heat and melt lunar soil or rock for electric electrolysis. Oxygen is released in the form of bubbles from the melt. When heated to 1600-2500 degrees, oxygen-containing rock mass can decompose to produce oxygen

this technical step is simple, without additional reagents and without considering the recovery and recycling of materials. In addition to oxygen production, it can also realize the preparation of silicon, iron and other metal materials with high purity

however, this technology requires high temperature conditions, so it has great danger. The advantage is high efficiency. 20-30 kg of oxygen can be prepared from 100 kg of sample

according to researcher Guo Linli, 511 Institute of the Fifth Academy of Astronautics has achieved certain results by using the Chang’e detector platform and small reaction furnace to carry out lunar oxygen production test
