AstroBioNibbler's organic molecule extraction


The working concept for the AstroBioNibbler's organic molecule extraction. Water-soil mixture (left-side) flows in parallel with an organic solvent (right-side). Organic molecules in the soil diffuse across the flow boundary and into the organic solvent, where they are tagged by fluorescent markers. Credit: Andrew Aubrey and Frank Grunthaner, JPL
