    Mars (to cite one example) is covered in highly oxidized compounds.  The main limiting factor is energy to remove the oxygen, but solar energy is still practical at Mars' distance from the Sun, and for the first few years colonies can rely on fission nuclear reactors.  Eventually they may also rely on fusion.

    Pour yourself into the future.
