Non-Rocket Space Launch and Flight

In recent years scientists have investigated a series of new methods for non-rocket space launch, which promise to revolutionize space launches and flight. Particularly in the current political climate new, cheaper, and more ‘fuel efficient’ methods are being investigated.

Such new methods include the gas tube method, cable accelerators, tether launch systems, space elevators, solar and magnetic sails, circle launcher space keepers and more. The author brings a vast amount of experience to the topic, having worked as an engineer, designer, project director and researcher at key institutes including NASA and the US Air Force.
