Representative studies done in the area of extraterrestrial chemical production as it applies to solar system exploration are presented. A description of the In Situ Propellant Production (ISPP) system is presented.

Various propellant combinations and direct applications along with the previously mentioned benefits and liens are : S. Hoffman. The first major step of any in-situ propellant production (ISPP) system is to acquire carbon dioxide (C02) from the Mars atmosphere and compress it for further chemical processing.

Resources intrinsic to the lunar environment, the abundant and oxide rich surface regolith and local water ice reserves, can be processed in order to.

Consumable Production In Situ Energy Conversion of acquired resources into products with immediate use or as feedstock for construction & manufacturing Generation and storage of electrical, thermal, and chemical energy with in situ derived materials Solar arrays, thermal storage and energy, chemical batteries, etc.

In-Situ Resource Utilization is viewed by most as the basis for a successful manned exploration and settlement of the solar system. It is as its name implies, the “living off the land” that is a necessity for any untethered manned by: 9. Programme: What next for space resource utilisation.

Connolly and Robert M. Zubrin pp. - As human space exploration continues, methods to improve efficiency and reduce mission costs are necessary to support larger and more complicated missions. Interplanetary exploration missions require vast amounts of fuel for propulsion.

Our scientists and hardworking robots are exploring the wild frontiers of our solar system. One of the most significant drivers for the size of a Mars exploration launch vehicle is the amount of mass you need to carry to Mars and back.

Calculations show that for every The Reverse Water Gas Shift (RWGS) is one potential solution for the production of propellants Cited by: 2.

ISRU could provide materials for life support, propellants, construction materials, and energy to a spacecraft payloads or space exploration crews. It is now very common for spacecraft and robotic planetary surface mission to harness the solar radiation found in situ in the form of solar panels.

Mars offers the reagents required to produce in-situ propellants: atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO 2) to produce methane-oxygen (CH 4 -O 2) with hydrogen (H 2) either brought from Earth or in-situ hydrogen-oxygen from water ice on the surface of Mars.

The disposal of waste in a remote outpost, lunar or Martian is also an important consideration. @article{osti_, title = {Development of a Microchannel In Situ Propellant Production System}, author = {Brooks, Kriston P.
