    Great news. This helps the hydrolox Mars base camp lander--now a better fit than Zubrins Methane fuel from ISRU

    "Lockheed Martin also used the talk to emphasize the development of a “water-based economy” in space where water is extracted from the moon or asteroids for use as propellant or other applications in Earth orbit and beyond. The development of that water-based economy was one reason the company selected liquid hydrogen and not methane for the lander’s propulsion system, along with the overall efficiency of that propellant combination."
