Opening the High Frontier (the video)

A couple of months ago I started working on a new presentation for the Combination Launch System concept that was to be given at a conference I was thinking of going to.  As I worked on it, the presentation kept growing and evolving until I had the idea of making it into a video.  As a video it has continued to grow and evolve even more, improving with each change.  Even now, after all this time and effort, I am still not 100% sure it is finished, but it feels like the time is right to put it out there in the world and hear what people have to say about it.  

I hope you enjoy watching it and I look forward to your comments.

Post Script  For all of you who have made comments and suggestions on the video – Thank You. I have done my best to incorporate all of your suggestions into it and the end result is much better.
