See Momentum Physics and Good News Mars and Company. Lift typically refers to the vertical component of a flight apparatus.

Now back to space.

Improve current launch, delivery, and recovery, momentum lift column

How can we enhance current launch and recovery concepts?  When I look at a rocket being blasted into space I see a ton a wasted energy with very small payloads.  The following concept increases payloads, enables landing, and adds safety to both using ∆T and geometry to create and induce helpful air flows. 

First let's create a lift toy.  We will start with a momentum disc.
