Beginning of the space race for the right to establish air on Mars

Space race for the colonization of Mars - a great chance for engineers to compete in originality and efficiency ideas. Humanity plans to establish a colony on the Red Planet, and for that people need to solve a lot of issues related to the safety of life of future colonists.
One such problem - oxygen for respiration. If the air is saturated with them in the world, and the people he is talking only to the benefit of, the atmosphere of Mars is very different from the Earth. May involve scientists, about four billion years ago, the Red Planet and was rich in oxygen, but now the gases in its atmosphere totally unsuitable for breathing.
Therefore, the scientists decided to return the lost Mars and re-saturate it with air, breathable. Only in the last few months, three teams of researchers presented their vision of how people will be able to breathe on the fourth planet from the sun.
Students from the University of Western Australia in conjunction with the candidate to participate in the project Mars One Josh Richards (Josh Richards) have developed a project called Helena Payload Project. The researchers suggest the use of a simple system for the extraction of water from the Martian soil and convert it into breathing air by means of electrolysis.
The Australian team will compete with the German band Cyano Knights, which offer an alternative way of generating air Martian colonists. Oxygen, according to the authors of this idea can produce cyanobacteria. Microorganisms can process up to 95% of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere of Mars in pure oxygen.
