Default Re: [Spaceships] Martian “Gas” Station

Here version 2.1 of the "Gas" Station using RC30 to get power from my "Solar Panel Arrays" on Mars. I parked my new "Mars Rovers" (I'm still tweaking the design so I'll post it later) in the middle section hangar bay and moved my crew and "guest" quarters to the core of that section for maximum radiation protection (yes, that section is already underground but every little bit helps).

User Notes: This “Gas” station mines ice from a frozen underground aquafer which is turned into hydrogen (for reaction mass or lifting gas) or LOH (for fuel cells or rockets) by different chemical refineries. The hydrogen is also used as feed stock for a third refinery that produces methane (reaction mass) with carbon dioxide in the Martian atmosphere.The oxygen produced as a "byproduct" of getting hydrogen from water is also collected, liquified and sold as a valuable commodity on Mars.

You will note power profile "d" (the SPAs) doesn't have a consumption number. That's because its main purpose is to augment the reactors' power load and charge the energy bank so it can run one of the refineries for 9 hours after dark. I also tweaked the habitats a bit. I revised my campaign definition to recognize liquid oxygen as a "new fuel" since it is a major byproduct of getting Hydrogen from water/ice and is very marketable on Mars and to visiting spacecraft by itself. (I calculated the market value as $650/ton but suspect demand would push it higher. By mass alone it would be the major product of the mine.) Tell me what you think.
