    Well he didn’t get to Stephen Hawking’s party yet, has he? But perhaps he will one day, in some other timeline, and some other me will have remembered it happening.

    He will have been waiting in the future for the past to catch up with him and that never will have been doing.

    It must be impossible otherwise you could send back an alleged cancer cure that once made is a pathogen that kills all males.On

    Or know the results of experiments before they are done.

    But it’s only impossible until it happens. Once it has occurred, the whole shebang will go into a recursive loop and the universe will disappear with a “pop”.

    Of course I thought of it first.

    The major problem is how hot the tether will get, although the lower part will be moving relatively slowly in the thicker atmosphere the top part will be travelling about four thousand mph.

    Maybe cooling water could travel up the tether if needed.

    My idea was to have a really powerful high speed train travelling about five hundred mph going round and round on a circular track, it would slowly let the tether and aero foil shaped solid rocket (autophage) out, the tether would also be shaped to generate lift.

    I don't recommend this launch system for manned flight for obvious reasons.

    Tether...? 'Tis nobler to suffer the slings
    and arrows of Outrageous Fortune?

    Such a launch system might work better on the moon and Mars, perhaps matching up with an orbital rotating tether?

    The trouble with your ideas is that they have no quantitative component. That's the kinder way of saying it.

    Gee, thanks.

    Modular conceptuals allow provision of quantitative components. Insert values A, B, and C into variable slots d, e, and f, iterate computation crank, observe results in the little window. Three cherries wins.
