What's your idea for a cheap way to get people into space?

the probably best and cheapest way to get in to space is combining both jet engines and rockets on one vehicle, such as the skylon plane with an engine or jet and rocket combined and also the virgin galactic spaceships. Use the jet engines or supersonic engines to get high enough and the use the rocket to take the vehicle the rest of the way to space. Done deal. As for space travel propulsion the only best engines we have are the ion engines but also there is the Vasimr engine which i have been following and it look very promising. The engine also produces an electromagatic field around the ship which can protect everyone on board also for artificial gravity do that old idea of have a piece of he ship spin where people can live in, like in mission to mars movie and other movies.
As for blowing up a astroiod or meteor do what they did in Armageddon, blow the damn thing from the instead out. Or shot rockets in to the big thing which can change the trajectory/course so it misses earth. Or how about building a giant laser and shooting at it from a distance?
