NASA Advanced Life Support

I had the pleasure of meeting NASA scientist, John Baro in person last night at an Exo Quest demonstration. He recently worked on a project to develop advanced life-support systems (ALS) for future Mars missions. Today he wrote us an email about his advancements in ALS research. This exciting news can be found in the email archive. Here's a snippet:

...The last project I worked on was about NASA's advanced life support (ALS) research. Although there are many potential uses for these new ALS systems, the main thing on most of the researcher's minds is Mars. Living on Mars is one thing, but getting there is a whole other problem. ...The current feeling among the ALS people I worked with was that they would have the life support ready for a three-year manned mission to Mars within 10 years.
