Re: Another mighty initial thrust idea
"the enormous difference that you don’t seem to see"
That's what this bit was about:
"Especially if that launch is from a suspended platform."
Perhaps it would have been clearer to say 'free moving suspended platform'.
My point was that the problems of stabilising the plane/rocket combo (or plocket (tm)) and the non-fixed launched platform WILL show that we are in trouble BEFORE we go adding in low air density and low temperatures to the list of problems.
