Working on Mars' Moon Phobos

Artist's concept of possible exploration programs. On Phobos, the innermost moon of Mars and likely location for extraterrestrial resources, a mobile propellant-production plant lumbers across the irregular surface. Using a nuclear reactor, the large tower melts into the surface, generating steam, which is converted into liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen.
