Developing Partnerships... Launching Dreams
The ISRU Laboratory is a multifaceted group that conducts applied and basic research in chemical processing systems in support of Advanced Exploration Systems and the Space Technology Mission Directorate.
A 2nd Generation Molten Regolith Electrolysis work currently at MIT will be completed at the ISRU Lab. This will require designing, building, and testing an electrolysis reactor and the equipment required to characterize the oxygen produced during the reaction. As well as, a contaminant removal system might be required for this process and it will also be developed in this lab.
Regolith and Environmental Science and Oxygen and Lunar Volatiles Extraction (RESOLVE) looks to analyze, separate, and capture volatiles within lunar regolith. The lab is managing the overall project, and has developed a gas analysis instrument and gas separation and capture systems targeting the analysis, capture, and separation of hydrogen and water.
