Catapult to Orbit - SpinLaunch


Recommended Posts

Have to wonder if  they are eating Stratolaunch's (intended, not provably real) lunch.  They appear to have the worlds best "hypersonic testing facility" on the Earth.  With the claimed recovery of all launch tests, this might make some customers wonder if adjusting a scramjet test to handle 10kG of lateral load might be worth it.  Best guess is that they have to move as fast as possible to try to get the big yeeter up and running, and don't have time to talk about anything else.

This might be the most progress on the craziest idea I've ever seen in spaceflight.
