Quicklaunching off Earth With Dr. John Hunter

We spoke with Dr. John Hunter, physicist turned president of QuickLaunch about their goal to deliver propellant (and other necessities) to space at less than 10% of the current cost. Think Jules Verne's space gun in From the Earth to the Moon - but instead of launching people - they're launching fuel and freight (which is responsible for 90% of the weight of a traditional space craft). 

...See guys like me - a lot of the hardcore space guys - really think we should get off the planet and at least explore Mars and the moon... and put scientific groups on those locations... Who knows what you're going to find - that's the nature of exploration.  You go out there and jump into the deep end and hopefully you make it back to the side of the pool.
