Extending humanity to other worlds in the Solar System is at the very limits of our modern technology. And unless there are dramatic discoveries in new propulsion systems or we learn how to build everything out of carbon nanotubes, the future of space exploration is going to require living off the land.

The technique is known as In-Situ Resource Utilization or ISRU, and it means supplying as much of your mission from local resources as possible.

And many of our future exploration destinations, like Mars, have a lot to work with. Let’s look at the raw materials on Mars that missions can use to live off the land and the techniques and technologies that will need to be developed to make this possible.

When Voyager 2 took the first images of Neptune, it discovered an enormous dark spot similar to the one found on Jupiter. When it was observed just a few years later, the dark spot had completely disappeared. This video looks at how the storms on Neptune and Jupiter form and why we might see Jupiter’s Great Red Spot disappear in our lifetime.
