NASA Finds Yet Another Way To Extract Oxygen From Lunar Soil

It's great that NASA scientists, and researchers around the world for that matter, are discovering new and improved ways of extracting breathable oxygen--among other useful things-- from lunar soil.

If you didn't know, lunar soil is rich in oxides--molecules fused with oxygen. Break these molecules apart and the oxygen is released.
Some use carbon monoxide, others use a focused lens, but they all achieve the same spectacular results: Oxygen lunar citizens can breathe!

Now, if only NASA could just figure out how to get people to the Moon, they could put all this wonderful research to good use...
