1746483 story Lunar Oxygen and Water Production Tech Tested 56 Posted by CmdrTaco on Wednesday November 19, 2008 @12:50PM from the bathtub-in-space dept. savuporo writes "NASA and its industry partners organized a two-week lunar in-situ resource utilization field test in Hawaii. The tested machines included a few different rovers and prototype plants for generating oxygen and water from lunar regolith. Astrotoday has a picture gallery and a video report. This follows on the heels of the recent ESA lunar robotics challenge event held on Tenerife, which tasked student teams to build a lunar robot that would be able to search for water ice in lunar polar craters."
