    "The author of these papers and patent has put forth some very visionary ideas about large scale expeditions to the planets and has the steps to get there." ... The costs estimated for the infrastructure and planetary spaceships appears low by even "new ways of doing business" standards. ... In general, the systems propsed would require significant development and testing before being practically applied.

    "..the economic and engineering challenges for the electromagnetically launched, captured, and relaunched propulsion system you envision are significant. ... Free and creative thinking are necessary for the future development of space. However, at present practical funding limitations are requiring NASA to set nearer term objectives than your proposed system can provide".

    ... Concepts requiring fewer large infrastructures are more attractive than those needing multiple staging bases, large fixed power facilities, and new Earth-to-orbit transportation systems. ... we strongly suggest that you review cost and schedule data for other space programs such as Apollo, Space Station, etc. ... the order of magnitude ... are significantly different than your proposal.
