FCT Project PREMiERE - CO2 Plasmas: a fRiEndly MEdium for Renewable Energy, is under way! Started June 2016.
A brief overview is available on Antena 1 radio show "90 seconds of science" (in Portuguese).

A new paper on in situ resource utilisation on Mars, which shows that gas discharges operating at atmospheric pressure on Mars are extremely strong candidates to produce O2 efficiently from the locally available resources.
It was selected as Europhysics News Highlight and 2017 Highlights of PSST.
It then originated a Feature Article and made the cover of Europhyics News!
We are now building project OPTIMiSm to develop this idea!
