I have an idea for moving people and even items into space. Without using using a rocket to get them up there. Now before you laugh just hear me out.

The idea is based on watching this guy:

Now if I recall he was on the edge of space at that point of his jump, and that got me thinking. What if there was away to pull you up from that point into outter space.

The idea is have a orbiting system, that will move around the planet, lower a drag capture hookup, then it could grab on to your balloon setup and pull you the rest of the way up. It could be a remote drone type robot, and once it has you pulled up, it would dock you to the space station.

Ok it's just an idea lol. But it could work right?

So what are you ideas?
