This is how “space ropes” work to send payloads into space

First American startup successfully tested space slingshot From history: But what is usually called “space slingshot” is actually a file suborbital accelerator.

Essentially, the idea was born to allow you to send things from Earth into space, at a distinctly low cost. Because in these years marked by a race to the new conquest of space, anything becomes possible only by finding ways to cut costs: just as it happened space-X By designing the first rockets to return to Earth, they can be reused.
the SpinLunch An American startup funded by Hon $110 million from Airbus and Google – He did the same. Test his invention, taking advantage of simplicity Kinetic energy.
The first test was successful: a small bullet about three meters long, which reached several miles of altitude and then returned to the ground with a parachute. The idea, however, is to outfit the little lunch with a motor that will only work in the end.
Now, however, after demonstrating that the idea is valid and feasible, the goal is to do big things: to create a new – obviously bigger – platform that will allow more payloads to be sent into space per day, in order to weigh 200 kg eachAll in reusable capsules.
