Solidified Oxygen for Breathing in Space
Man, in his attempts to push his way through the hostile reaches of space, finds it necessary to bring his life-sustaining supplies with him, i.e., oxygen, food, water, etc. In fact, the length of time man is able to spend in space is limited by the amount of these life-sustaining supplies that he is able to carry with him. This is particularly true of oxygen which man, at his average metabolic rate, consumes at a rate of 2–1/2 lb/day.
