Raytheon Asteroid Miner Concept
« on: 02/18/2010 09:26 AM »
I heard Jim Head from Raytheon talk last year about an ISRU concept.  He described a system of tugs delivering asteroid/comet water to L1/L2 and on-orbit processing to LH2/LOX.  Apparently there was some reports about this floating around in 2005, but I haven't been able to find anything.

If anyone has a copy of these reports, or anything similar that has actual numbers in it, please let me know.
I hear those things are awfully loud. It glides as softly as a cloud. What's it called? Monowhale!
