Yes, it is effectively a high tech cannon that can shoot projectiles at Mach 5. He showed me a video that was better than the Youtube I linked to (and I guess they will eventually post on their site or to Youtube). It showed their satellite launch. Basically, they eliminated all of the heavy parts of the rocket, including the fuel tanks, and just launched the payload. At Mach 5 straight out of the “cannon”.
