Why EML?

Electromagnetic Launch Technology holds the promise of truly low-cost access to orbit. This is no small thing. It is the economics of space that keeps us from the promise of space.

Moon resources, including water, oxygen, iron, and titanium are abundant on the moon. NASA’s Artemis and Lunar Gateway project intend a permanent return to the moon, in part to extract useful moon resources for further solar system exploration and the settlement of Mars. Launch to orbit is a necessary part of this effort. The moon is uniquely suited to electromagnetic launch with its solar energy, ever present vacuum, low temperature and reduced need for high escape velocity to reach orbit.

The prize of truly low-cost access to space is so great, the research and engineering effort is well worth it.

America pioneered the high-energy physics and engineering of electromagnetic launch technology. Now, this technology is poised to deliver the greatest economic prizes of the 21st century. Dramatically changing the cost of delivery of raw materials to lunar and low earth orbit will make possible a new level of abundance for mankind. We have gathered together key experts from all over the world to show this technology has moved from feasible to actionable.
