AI chemist finds molecule to make oxygen on Mars after sifting through millions

An AI-powered robot chemist has successfully synthesized compounds from Martian meteorites that could be used to generate oxygen from water. This breakthrough could aid future crewed missions to Mars by providing a cost-effective way to produce oxygen on the Red Planet, eliminating the need to transport it from Earth. The best catalyst found by the AI can split water at Mars-like cold temperatures, a process that would have taken a human scientist around 2,000 years using traditional methods.
