I really can't think of anything that we need in space that will be happy to take 5,000 Gs.  Perhaps I'm missing something?

That said, hypersonic aircraft aren't necessarily a bad way to get to space -- ram/scramjets could provide an efficient method of gaining speed in a significant portion of the atmosphere.  Getting into orbit requires "hypersonic" flight at some point, but it's obviously preferable to reach that speed in the upper atmosphere.

Hypersonic is dependent on Mach, which is dependent on the speed of sound, which is dependent on density and temperature.  The orbital speed at which you reach 'hypersonic' is much higher in the upper atmosphere in the lower atmosphere.  Saying that you must be hypersonic to reach orbit is not true.

These same scientists now believe that life came from gene roddenberry, scuse me, from space... and poof we all appeared. over millions and millions of years of course...
 
Because we all know that if you leave a junkyard for millions of years, it will develop the latest green car when given enough time...
 
wait... that doesn't work... Oh, well, it just happened. yeah, thats it.
 
Is your worldview warped by evolution?...
 
 
 

When will you realize that representative samples are not FACT.

And you can believe in God, but don't interfere with others who would like to pursue science.

And don't argue 'not with your money', because you live in a society. It's not all about you.
