Magnetic satellite launch system

Launchpoint Technologies have developed a proposal of a magnetic satellite launch system(pictured). This would allow for much cheaper launches as the operating costs of this technology are about 20% of what is currently spent.

Unfortunately such a device will be unsuitable for human\animal cargo’s as it launches at about 6 km/s and exerts roughly 10,000 Gs of force. (The centrifuge that NASA use to test astronauts can only simulate up to 20Gs of force)
