Abstract

Our research group has been conducting a basic work on experimental missions for lunar resource utilization since 1996. The objective of the research work is to provide a conceptual design of the In-situ Space Resource Utilization (ISRU) experiment system for unmanned water production on the Moon, and to define essential technological breakthroughs. As part of the research program, an experimental study on the hydrogen reduction of lunar soil has been performed to design a chemical reactor for water production.
