what about breaking Jupiter and Saturn and the other planets up, and making a Dyson sphere?
Set in the year 2125, when space travel and colonization within the solar system is commonplace, Dr. Eiji Honda (Tomokazu Miura) - the character apparently so named in honor both Tsuburaya and director Ishiro Honda - is a scientist working on a project to transform Jupiter into a "second sun," and thus provide energy for colonies established on the outer planets. Plans for this are opposed by a radical religious cult (founded by a bearded former pop star), who repeatedly attempt to sabotage Honda's efforts aboard Minerva, a series of research vessels orbiting Jupiter.

Ok I know this sounds a little out there but Jupiter is mostly made from hydrogen and helium, and those can be used as fuel, so maybe one day we can syphon the gas from the planet and use it for fuel, either here on earth or on moon bases etc.
Possible? not yet but could it happen?
Think of it as a giant off shore oil platform in space drilling for gas.
It came to me in a dream and I thought wow good Idea.edit on 30-12-2011 by boymonkey74 because: (no reason given)
