    Why not add in railguns to this idea? They don't need to reach 40000 km/h, they only need to reach enough speed to get to the lower end of the tether. You could easily launch something at a G force which humans can tolerate well up to the tether, likely using renewable energy. On smaller planets like the other rocky planets and the moons of gas giants, where you only need a small railgun to get to the orbit of the tether, you could get something far more useful, perhaps a shuttle to get out to Neptune's moons and then a huge railgun or a huge tether or a conventional rocket could get you out to the distant solar system. I do have a question about the propulsion of the tether anchor though. If the propulsion system is electricity, assuming it is collected via solar panel, how does it convert the electricity into a form of energy which can be used to propel it?

    I have an important question to you, because it involves your survival. This channel is fully animated. So how do you handle COPPA? I worried your videos are considered for kids, and because of subject matter, you get fined.

    We may have the underlying scientific knowledge, but it's a long long way to design, develop, and engineer such orbital tethers. I wish you guys would be a little more realistic.
