    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.

I think your math is wrong... it wouldn't "just need little corrections to keep the hook in place". If you accelerate a 1 ton spaceship by hook up to 40'000km/h, the sling looses exactly as much energy as woud be needed to accelerate the spaceship by rocket. So this only works so neat if there are as much outgoing as incoming spaceships. And i think the same goes for space elevators. Pleasw correct me if I'm wrong.

Bro Im not sure why these things arent in elons plans. If these things are true then how come no one is starting to build them. Oh how I wish I was born with money...Id spend it on a space company. And open the world to put ideas solutions problems challenges in together. If we can throw a satellite into orbit and build planes to go mach 7 without relative difficulty these should be quite simple and easy to do. Money sucks to be an issue with this stuff. Humans as one should band together and do what needs to be done to expand our horizons. Screw getting rich on the planet when you can spend it all to get rich in space. Should be a knowledge race rn. To build engines and ships capable of interplanetary travel. We have what it takes. If we as Humans evolved our minds from the issues we have with one another or trying to control one another or bring others down this stuff wouldve been in our childrens history books instead of learning why we been killin each other for the last 2000 years.
