"Submarines and Secrets"
Slingshot is a love story - about a man, a woman, another man, another woman, some gender bending...and a machine, the largest ever built. It is an adventure - about following a dream, the ocean-deep, outer space. Slingshot is about constructing the first space launch-loop, stretching 2,000 km between Baker and Jarvis Islands in the Equatorial Pacific. It's about high finance, intrigue, unlimited ambition, heroism, fanaticism, betrayal...and about opening space to the common person.
