The new life support system of the ISS will help to survive with a mission to Mars
The Advanced Closed Loop System system delivered by the Japanese cargo device can form the basis of new life support systems which will help with long-term missions in deep space.

delivered Advanced Closed Loop System (ACLS) Developed by the European Space Agency (ESA) to the International Space Station (ISS) by means of the Japanese cargo device HTV-7 recently. This system can provide the station with 400 liters of water.

the System splits water on hydrogen and oxygen which astronauts can breathe. In the past it was necessary to deliver all water for production of oxygen from Earth. The new system takes the equal volume of water and methane. However haven't found for the methane produced in the form of carbon dust application yet.

according to Daniel Laurini from the ESA, directing system development, his team doesn't plan to increase system productivity for processing more than 50 percent of the exhaled carbon dioxide yet. Nevertheless next year they will test this system in total with the vodoroslevy photobioreactor developed by the German aerospace agency DLR.
