Air Mining - The concept of mining the upper atmosphere from orbit for fuel and air.

Some works mention that structures and machines can, theoretically, be constructed from atmospheric gases.[1][2]

  1. Robert A. Freitas Jr. "Some Limits to Global Ecophagy by Biovorous Nanoreplicators, with Public Policy Recommendations". quote: "it is at least theoretically possible that replicators could be constructed almost solely of CHON".
  2. "Aerovores (Gray Dust)".
