Not to be confused with Ice

"Throwing snowballs at God," that's how CEO Nwabudike Morgan described this incredibly ambitious project. Drawing water from the local hydrosphere, this facility will freeze and compact it into giant building-sized blocks, coat those blocks in heat-resistant supermaterials, and then launch them into space like comets in reverse. It's a huge undertaking, but one that has already begun drawing large tourism crowds for every launch.

The Ice Launcher can lower the water of the body it is on. With every launch the atmosphere loses some pressure due to those comets are going into space, and also this facility makes money from the tourists.

This is a very valuable building for recovering from events that create a large amount of water vapor (eg if the player has survived an asteroid strike by deliberately heating the world to boil off the resulting flood). It can also be used to balance the water production of Habitation Domes, and the pressure production of Spaceports, while turning a profit.

Levels beyond V are only reached through events.
