Concerning the limit on TL for magsails, let's test it for extremely stripped down TL 9 and TL10 variants:

Q to all: can a carrier ship temporarily "follow" a planet on the same orbit around Karin as the planet uses itself ... just a few (30-40) planetary radi "behind" it?

The major problem with mag sails and the outer system is deceleration. Basically you'll have to find other ways to slow down. If you sail inward ... well, get a first push from your starting place,...

magsails are not "real" sails. That's the great things. It's a magnetic field. So no need to retract it. Solar sails are material on the other hand. :D

Well, you can slow down using sling shot and other maneuvers. But yeah, I wouldn't use magsails for military ships.

Oh btw, you can use several magsails to speed up. Costs only space ;)

OK, I'll edit this post so please don't be disturbed by it's shortness for now. ;)

To get off from Rayame we have three stages:

13, I think using water is just don't worth it. If you use water to get from 0.8 mps to 1.5 mps you would need almost 5 tanks of water to do so, each giving you 0.15 mps only. Remember the "free...

Isn't that rather 5,420 mph? 4G is 5,000 mph, plus 70% of the step to 5G (5,600 mph). Resulting in 1.50 mps.

OK, let's get the whole data for a liftoff from Rayame:

Rayame has 1.2G, 7.5 atm and an escape velocity of 7.89 mps.

Air pressure on earth reduces by 50% every 5km / 3 miles (scale height). For...

Oh 13, do you allow reconfigurable cargo space to fuel tank? Together with some other reconfiguration this might make for a sensible long range shuttle.

Actually for the condor it's one tank. 0.45 mps * 1.4 once you got 9+ -> 0.63 mps.

So you pay $6 million to have 5tons more cargo every liftoff. What was it, $2.5 per lbs? That's $25,000 per...
