Flying to the moon? Cooperation between Israel and Germany that will bring you oxygen

Spacecraft Flight 0770 Please note: An Israeli-German agreement to conduct an oxygen fortification experiment on lunar soil was signed in Germany between OHB and the Israeli company Helios, which operates with the support of the Israeli Space Agency.

Helios is a company that is developing technology for the production of oxygen and metal from moon dance and other planets to overcome one of the significant challenges in having future extraterrestrial colonies.

OHB’s spacecraft is being built together with Israel Aerospace Industries on the basis of experience gained in the Genesis project and is planned to carry out a series of experiments and fly unique cargo to the moon for the European Space Agency, companies in Europe and around the world.

To better understand why all this is needed we say hello to Jonathan Geifman, CEO of Helios.

“Oxygen is one of the most significant and heavy components in space flight, over 60% of the weight of the rockets at launch.” Gifman explains. “A spacecraft to the moon is expected to consume hundreds of tons of oxygen to burn the rocket engines and for human use by astronauts. Fortification of oxygen on the moon is the key to extraterrestrial human development and a dramatic reduction in space exploration costs. “

The formation of materials is done in a process of electrolysis which decomposes the minerals and oxides that make up the sand into iron, iron and silicon. Helios’ technology, which it develops in its laboratories in Israel, also has many applications on Earth in the production of iron and silicon in an environmentally friendly process that can reduce over 10% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the world.

“Establishing a permanent base on the moon requires broad international cooperation,” says Brigadier General (Res.) Uri Oron, director general of the Israel Space Agency. “Helios is an example of a company that will become a major global player in efforts to return to the moon. We welcome the tripartite cooperation between the two companies along with IAI that expresses the strong technological ties between Israel and Germany and the ability of cross-border collaborations to bring about scientific breakthroughs.”

Helios is an Israeli company that was established in 2018 with the support of the Israeli Space Agency, the Ministry of Energy and the Innovation Authority. The company’s vision is to enable sustainable existence on Earth and beyond. The company has a number of technological developments, which include the production of oxygen from lunar dance and the production of silicon and steel without greenhouse gas emissions on Earth.

Now that we know all about it – strap in and take a deep breath, there’s enough oxygen for everyone.

Pleasant flight.
