||[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:LaunchLoop.svg|{{attachment:LaunchLoop400.png|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:LaunchLoop.svg}}]] ||'''The Launch Loop''' is an earth to high orbit launch system, based on momentum and energy storage in a long (5200km diameter) and narrow (3 cm) hypervelocity (14km/s) iron rotor. The Launch Loop is powered and deployed from the ground, protected from space debris by the upper atmosphere, can launch thousands of tons per day to high orbit, and can be built with existing engineering materials for a few gigadollars (mostly for the electric power plant that drives it).<<BR>><<BR>>Here is [[more information]].<<BR>><<BR>>Here is a list of [[things to do]].<<BR>><<BR>> For more information, email to keithl AT kl-ic DOT com || #acl KeithLofstrom:read,write All:read
