Automated hydrogen fuel harvesting platforms are space stations set in stable orbit around hydrogen-rich gas giants that harvest and process hydrogen into spacecraft fuel. While they are fully automated, they are not self-repairing. Well-maintained platforms are visited by repair crews multiple times per Standard Earth Year. Platforms that have fallen into disrepair are sometimes abandoned.
