Scientists at Washington University in St. Louise have devised an electric system to break apart the salty water to its constituent molecules; oxygen and hydrogen. They are fairly certain that their experiment on Earth can survive the Martian environment with temperatures as low as -33 degrees Fahrenheit.

NASA is set to land its first group of astronauts on the planet by 2033. Both fuel and oxygen will be a necessity for humans there.
