This undated graphic provided by NASA shows the Mars 2020 Rover. NASA plans to make oxygen _ a key rocket fuel ingredient _ on Mars early next decade. Space agency officials unveiled seven instruments they plan to put on a Martian rover that would launch in 2020, including two devices aimed at bigger future Mars missions. The $1.9 billion rover will include an experiment that will turn carbon dioxide in the Martian atmosphere into oxygen. NASA Associate Administrator Bill Gerstenmaier said it could be then used as half of what’s needed for rocket fuel and for future astronauts to breathe. Taking fuel to Mars for return flights is heavy and expensive. (AP Photo/NASA)WASHINGTON (AP) — NASA plans to make oxygen — a key ingredient of rocket fuel — on Mars early next decade.

FILE - This April 22, 2013 file photo shows Memphis-based guitarist Robert Johnson standing by a display of guitars that belonged to Chet Atkins and Johnny Cash that he donated to the National Music Museum in Vermillion, S.D. Johnson also donated the guitar played by Elvis Presley during his final tour. Johnson says the deal to donate the Presley guitar to the museum was legitimate. A federal judge has been asked to determine if Johnson rightfully owned the broken instrument when he donated it last year. The museum insists in a lawsuit that it is the legal owner of the guitar “The King” played during his 1977 tour. Collector Larry Moss says Johnson sold him the guitar earlier. (AP Photo/Dirk Lammers, File)SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A man who donated to a South Dakota museum a slightly damaged acoustic guitar played by Elvis Presley that is at the center of a custody battle insisted Thursday he had the right to give it away because he owned it.
