Chemists around the country are pioneering technologies to keep astronauts safe and healthy on a mission to Mars, from the materials in their spacecraft to the food they eat and the air they breathe. At the ACS national meeting in August, we talked with some of the scientists helping make Mars exploration possible.

    How about we end all hungers on earth and take care of every lives and solved our differences and improve our destructive mindset stead ignoring what’s going on here and spend millions to go somewhere we don’t even know If we can live without oxygen musk.?! This is no longer over achievement this is deceiving.
