Why worry about getting to orbit when you can take your orbits WITH YOU!

Heh.... Nice.

Now, if only we had one a bit smaller to strap on to the Moon.... Those astronomers swear that it's drifting away from us, we really ought to put a stop to that.

Lol, with such an engine, our earth's resources would be empty "very quick" :)
Also a shield for changing sun's distance, causing temperature changes would be nice in that case ;)
Beside that, it's just not possible as we all know :) nice art ;)

spacecowboy, about the moon, yes it's drifting away, but I wouldn't wanne change it.. and end up with the moon "drifting closer" to us lol
