It's an Amusement Ride! No, it's a Launch Vehicle!

NASA seems to be taking renewed interest in rail launch systems. If the illustration is to be believed, by scaling down an SR-71 and flinging it down a horizontal Superman ride. It's been my experience that any program with a lead time greater than a single administration is a crap-shoot. Still, it's nice to see they're trying to screw together new technologies rather than screw with crap nobody's sure will ever work.
