Awesome find and great article.


Ceres will the next staging point that humans will take once a station on the Moon and Mars has been completed.


Water roids and minerals would be gathered from around Ceres centralized on Ceres surface and its orbit and then transported to Mars for refinement and then onto Earth and Martian facilities for use in ship and facility building projects.

That’s a bit of expensive proposal for a society that runs on a monetary economy.


For now its only a pipe dream but maybe astronauts can still use the water for their own uses.

As you said, dryson, already having water and some kind of atmosphere--as well as a place to burrow into for protection--there would make such bodies ideal outposts, if not full colonies.  Those resources would require less luggage for the trip!

Saw that there's a lot of liquid water on other planets/moons in our own solar system:
