Mars colony game changer: New technology can extract water and fuel from salty water

Researchers have developed a new system to separate salty water into both breathable air and fuel simultaneously in a major breakthrough for life here on Earth and even future colonies on Mars.

Engineers at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis developed a patented brine electrolysis system that not only works without the need for purified water but actually performs better thanks to the saltiness of the input water.
