Founder of the Longshot space launch project, Mike Grace, gives an overview of his alternative kinetic launch technology. The system uses compressed air to accelerate projectiles to hypersonic speeds for launching payloads into space. Mike highlights the technical challenges involved with heating, stability, and high-G forces. He explains how they construct burst disks to control the timing of air release and why they do not spin-stabilize payloads. Mike provides a brief tour of their facility and testing site. He also discusses the market demand for launching satellites to specific inclinations and the goal of reducing space launch costs. Mike is looking to hire electrical and civil engineers to help advance the project. Overall, the Longshot space launch project aims to make access to space more affordable through this innovative alternative technology.
