Q&A

What would it take to make catapults a alternate way to travel?

+0
−0

I have an idea for a futuristic way to travel for my Story. People get into a capsule, and it launches itself extremely fast in the air. What would be needed to make this happen for real and what complications would exist?

Qualifications:

The people can't die.

The people must be able to be comfortable inside

It has to be somewhat reusable

It has to be FAST. Faster than airplanes now.

It has to be accurate. Landing in an airport like place.

My Ideas:

I thought a stabilizer inside would be important, so the capsule can spin, but the cabin itself can feel like it's staying upright

Any Ideas?
