    Getting to space is incredibly hard, expensive and needs a lot of resources.
    A more efficient way to get there is a Skyhook (or Spacetether), an ever rotating cable with a counter weight, that catapults spaceships from earth orbit into the depths of space.

    Wouldn’t you also need a significant counterweight on the end where the spacecraft attaches, or the tether would just get wrapped around the center body

    One thing y'all forgot to mention. How would humans deliver a 6000 km long tether to the farthest moon from Mars.
    I assume a tether on a tether?
