Re: Mars Co2 or other compressed Gas Hopper rocket

Man's survival depends on the processing of atmosphere which is about 1/60th of earths density. The energy to pull it into the process is very intense, to not just collect but to clean and condense it to liquid form. The liquid form once its in hand can be broken down into Co and O2 to be used as if its a rocket fuel. This stays on mars so its recyclicable as a fuel source. All that is required is energy and equipment to make it happen.
