Default alt-tech: helium 3 fuel for power plants


Refined fuel is liquid helium 3. You can skim and filter it from (many) gas giants but you canít just scoop up free unrefined fuel from lakes and seas (1977 rules versus 1980 rules, no?).

Liquid helium is, I think, about 8 cubic meters per metric ton. Not 14.
But Iím keeping the Book 5 one ship ton= 14 cubic meters scale.
So, whatís the extra stuff in the tanks/fuel section? It is additional reaction mass/ejectable heat sinks.
