Probably a vaporware air launched rocket. Uses a twinjet UAV (could be a boneyard F-4 or F-15) for air launch, LOx/RP-1 two stage rocket that is allegedly reusable. Apparently the rocket engines have been hot fired already.

SRC "Sea Launch" purchase
So SeaLaunch changes hands again officially, now owned by S7 airlines. Notable is that they appear to want to modifify the SeaLaunch platforms to accommodate Syouz-5 aka Fenix, which also implies use of Federastia, the new passenger capsule.

Analysis of a Lunar Sling Launcher
Geoffrey Landis PDF on a lunar surface sling launch system, feasibility, and performance. looks doable and can go places. If you can fire the sling towards a lunar frozen orbit (86 degrees) or similar, you could do fairly regular launches. Being a tether based sling makes it easier to pack up/deploy compared to a fixed mass driver complex. Wonder how well you could catch with one too...

New Line-1 is a new smallsat launcher, 100kg to SSO, looks a whole lot like Falcon-9 down to the grid fins and fishbone landing legs on the first stage. $4.6mil for expendable at 200Kg payload, half price (payload weight?) for reusable launch.

iBeacons Aren’t Just For Retail: Placed Lets You Use Them As iPhone Quick Launchers At Home | TechCrunch
Hrm, so this is basically implementing passive NFC tag stickers (maybe with an app launcher) on android, with active bluetooth LE iBeacons hardware instead. NFC is much closer range, but the stickers are much cheaper than an iBeacon, and have no battery.

United States Patent Application: 0120241562
Boeing patent app for a counter orbit based orbital debris removal system, by launching targeted gas clouds at specific debris in a counter orbit so it doesn't destructively provide an impulse, so it doesn't further increase the microdebris issues. I wonder if it's reasonable to do the gas cloud injection/release via a targeted suborbital hop by a rocket/spaceplane (which would double as a deorbiting burn for the gas cloud launcher)

Paul Allen funding a newspace start that mixes Burt Rutan designing a monster carrier plane, Elon Musk's Falcon 9 converted into a Pegasus style winged air launch rocket, and some dudes who will build the rocket/aircraft interface who previously did the MOAB for the military. This might have legs. The carrier aircraft is drool-worthy for other newspace companies, in case this venture flames out...

product_sheet_-_leviathan_heavy_lift_launch_vehicle_rc.pdf (application/pdf Object)
The DIRECT guys are proposing Leviathan, an update to the old Truax Sea Dragon design using annular aerospike rocket engines. Which is exactly the idea I was kicking around with college friends back before 2000. Sea Dragon basically revolved around the logical end to the big dumb booster argument, making a rocket so large that certain materials handling issues become easier. Namely, using submarine pressure hull manufacturing techniques on half inch thick steel plates formed into a cylindrical tank body. You build this in a shipyard, not a clean room hangar. Due to size, sea transport and launh is must, but that ends up making a lot of other things easier. Leviathan neatly sidesteps one of the issues with Sea Dragon; the second stage expandable nozzle skirt. Aerospikes get almost equivalent performance for less complexity and risk. Reusuability is easier at this size, and sets the ground for SSTO.

Ocean Based Orbital Payload Delivery Cannon for $250 per pound
Interesting use of a tensile/tensegrity structure to straighten and stabilize the cannon, coupled with netural buoyancy to cut out a lot of the stresses (though at that size current/tidal forces may come into play).

A More Affordable, High G force Magnetic Space Launcher Proposal
A possible gas gun/railgun hybrid space launcher? I suppose it gets around the classic starting problem prevalent in a traditional railgun, along with some alternatives for powering the railgun, but the author says extending the railgun would make the gas gun irrelevant?
