Feasibility Study For Hydrogen Producing Colony on Mars

  title={Feasibility Study For Hydrogen Producing Colony on Mars},
  author={Mikhail V. Shubov},
A technologically mature colony on Mars can produce and deliver at least 1 million tons of liquid hydrogen per year to one or more propellant depots at Low Earth Orbit (LEO). Production of 1 kg of hydrogen at Marian colony and its delivery to LEO requires an energy expenditure of 1.4 GJ on Mars. LEO propellant depot contains hydrogen produced on Mars and oxygen produced on the Moon or near-Earth asteroids. This propellant is used to deliver payload from LEO to many destinations in the Solar…

Development of large-scale hydrogen liquefaction processes from 1898 to 2009
Abstract This paper presents a review of the development of large-scale hydrogen liquefaction processes throughout the world from 1898 to 2009. First, there is a concise literature review including
Theoretical Minimum Energies to Produce Steel for Selected Conditions
The energy used to produce liquid steel in today's integrated and electric arc furnace (EAF) facilities is significantly higher than the theoretical minimum energy requirements. This study presents
A sublimation heat engine
The results support the feasibility of low-friction in situ energy harvesting from both liquids and ices and extend the concept to liquid loads, generalizing the realization of the new engine to both sublimation and the instantaneous vapourization of liquids.
Cryogen based energy storage : process modelling and optimisation
Reliable operation of large scale electric power networks requires a balance of generation and end-user. The electricity markets mainly depend on the real-time balance of supply and demand because
First detection of fluorine on Mars: Implications for Gale Crater's geochemistry
Volatiles and especially halogens (F and Cl) have been recognized as important species in the genesis and melting of planetary magmas. Data from the Chemical Camera instrument on board the Mars
Comparative Life Cycle Assessment of Electrochemical Upgrading of CO2 to Fuels and Feedstocks
Development of electrochemical pathways to convert CO2 into fuels and feedstock is rapidly progressing over the past decade. Here we present a comparative cradle-to-gate life cycle assessment (LCA)
Saturation wind power potential and its implications for wind energy
There is no fundamental barrier to obtaining half (approximately 5.75 TW) or several times the world’s all-purpose power from wind in a 2030 clean-energy economy.
High-Precision Ephemerides of Planets—EPM and Determination of Some Astronomical Constants
The latest version of the planetary part of the numerical ephemerides EPM (Ephemerides of Planets and the Moon) developed at the Institute of Applied Astronomy of the Russian Academy of Sciences is
The structure of Mars lower atmosphere from Mars Express Radio Science (MaRS) occultation measurements
[1] The Mars Express Radio Science Experiment (MaRS) investigates the lower and middle atmosphere of Mars between the surface and about 40 km with a very high vertical resolution. More than 600
A global Mars dust composition refined by the Alpha‐Particle X‐ray Spectrometer in Gale Crater
Modern Martian dust is similar in composition to the global soil unit and bulk basaltic Mars crust, but it is enriched in S and Cl. The Alpha Particle X-ray Spectrometer (APXS) on the Mars Science
