A recent study published in Nature Synthesis suggests that an AI-powered robot chemist could efficiently produce oxygen on Mars, a crucial element for human survival.

The study highlights the challenges humans face in producing oxygen on Mars due to the vast number of potential oxygen evolution reaction (OER) catalysts and communication delays with Earth.

“There are more than a million potential oxygen evolution reaction (OER) catalysts on Mars, which would give humans too many possibilities to work with when trying to create oxygen,” the report found.

“Adding to the problem would be communication with Earth to solve the problems, with transmissions taking as long as 20 minutes to travel between the home planet and Mars,” the report added.

The study indicates that AI robots could solve the oxygen production puzzle within six weeks, a task that would take a human a lifetime.

The research underscores the potential of advanced AI technology in automating material discovery and synthesis for extraterrestrial exploration.

“Oxygen supply must be the top priority for any human activity on Mars because rocket propellants and life support systems consume substantial amounts of oxygen, which cannot be replenished from the Martian atmosphere,” the authors wrote in the paper.

“Here we demonstrate a robotic artificial-intelligence chemist for automated synthesis and intelligent optimization of catalysts for the oxygen evolution reaction from Martian meteorites,” the authors wrote. “The entire process, including Martian ore pretreatment, catalyst synthesis, characterization, testing and, most importantly, the search for the optimal catalyst formula, is performed without human intervention.”

“Within six weeks, the AI chemist built a predictive model by learning from nearly 30,000 theoretical datasets and 243 experimental datasets,” the study reads.

“Our study provides a demonstration that an advanced AI chemist can, without human intervention, synthesize OER catalysts on Mars from local ores,” the authors of the study concluded.

“The established protocol and system, which are generic and adaptive, are expected to advance automated material discovery and synthesis of chemicals for the occupation and exploration of extraterrestrial planets.”
