The company that Arya Vaii and Gunnar Schmidt founded to commercially develop Arya's time-stopping discovery is making money hand over fist.
Currently, their profits come from their use of the phenomenal physical properties of a time-stopped segment of space-time to build rockets. But now, they’re building their space tower. Taking off at a 30-degree angle from Eastern Virginia, it’s 200 kilometers long and 100 kilometers high. By placing the interior of their spacecraft - and its passengers - in stasis, they can accelerate launches at 15 gravities, reaching orbital speeds before the craft leaves the rail. This lets them put payloads in orbit for a thousand times lower cost than a rocket.
The world, and some unscrupulous people, are turning to Kaem and his company to further our exploitation of orbital space.

This is a good addition to the stasis series. Light, with a good ending. Enjoyed it.
- Ben Wilson
Really like this series.
Very original idea. Can’t wait for the next one. I finish them too quickly. Recommend.
