Home The Space Canary sensor developed by Lunar Outpost Inc. can detect the ultra-fine lunar dust particles inside a habitat, alerting astronauts should an elevated level of contamination occur. Adapted for use on Earth, the same technology, now renamed the Canary-S, can monitor forest fire emissions, evaluate urban air quality, and more.

Ahead of future lunar missions, NASA wanted a sensor to warn inhabitants if the level of dust gets dangerous. Lunar Outpost Inc. developed the Space Canary, an air-quality sensor, shown here (cannister-shaped device above the open door on the right) in a lunar habitat prototype designed by Lockheed Martin.
