Resum
This paper considers the use of hematite for in-situ rocket fuel production on Mars. Hematite is so ubiquitous on Mars that it gives the red planet its color and, indirectly, its name. In the process proposed here, by exploiting the low atmospheric pressure on Mars, hematite o¿ers the possibility of eliminating the electrolytic steps associated with current in-situ resource utilization schemes. In the proposed process, hematite (Fe_{2}O_{3}) from the rich deposits found on Mars (e.g. at Terra M...
