Question ID: 598551
I would like a precise calculation of the economics of the rail launch. Precisely how much payload and fuel will be saved if we launch the shuttles from a monorail launch system that launches off the Rocky Mountains? Assume the rail will launch the shuttle from about 700 MPH or more. What are the cost savings and will we be able to launch multiple ships within seconds of eachother? What is the payload increase and what is the fuel savings? The technology is the Colorado Monorail Initiative. Does this concept bring our space program into the Star Trek Level? Does it blow NASA away?
