Steam-Powered Asteroid Hoppers Developed through UCF Collaboration - University of Central Florida News | UCF Today
“WINE successfully mined the soil, made rocket propellant, and launched itself on a jet of steam extracted from the simulant. We could potentially use this technology to hop on the Moon, Ceres, Europa, Titan, Pluto, the poles of Mercury, asteroids — anywhere there is water and sufficiently low gravity.”

Interesting that they are OK with laser power beaming...
It's almost as if they are building a mobile SPS...

Mars Molniya Orbit Atmospheric Resource Mining | NASA
Interesting cyclic PROFAC for Mars. Using Molniya orbits is certainly different, but the main part looks to be a deep diver atmospheric scoop that spends more time out of atmosphere to cool/liquify propellant. Is this simply aerocapture by another name?
