After landing on the surface of Mars, NASA's Perseverance rover took its first breath.

Or rather, one of its instruments did.

Led by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment (MOXIE) is a small instrument on the Perseverance rover that's designed to transform carbon dioxide, which comprises some 96% of the atmosphere on Mars, into breathable oxygen.

Oxygen, of course, is crucial for a human mission to Mars. Since February 2021, the device has run seven times, each time producing about 0.2 ounces (6 grams) of oxygen per hour.

That's on par with the abilities of small trees here on Earth.

Making it to Mars: MOXIE

Meet MOXIE, one of the instruments on NASA’s Perseverance rover.

This experiment is going to find out if it’s possible to generate oxygen literally out of thin air—Martian air that is!

Learn how this small piece of Perseverance is working to help us figure out how humans can survive on Mars.
