... a step by step plan to get off the planet and eventually out into the galaxy. I'm sure those in the know can argue some of the science he presents but broadly the theme is we better do this or humanity it at risk.

Strictly speaking that's not accurate. If humanity doesn't spread out into space, it's not 'at risk," it's "outright doomed." Same goes for bunnies and carrots and humpack whales... and for American/Chinese/Lithuanian/Whatever culture.

If we cannot get something like a warp drive system installed on a spacecraft then the best that we can do would be to design a so called Worldship that would take humanity to the stars at sub light speed otherwise humanity is finished.

And how many times do you see guys sticking their heads out of the turret while firing?  (Tried to find one of a driver sticking his head out while firing, with no luck.  I'm sure they're out there though.  :o )

It's a bad scene, man. Cue Kenny Loggins.

Given the less aggressive max speed goals my assumption is that they could use a cheaper, derated propulsion
system relative to MALD.
Paid for the remainder of Skybolt's development and then sold the info back to the US.

What a shame that economics prevented that from happening...
