Take the fountain to its logical extreme and you have a
LASER launcher :-)
The pellets become photons and the tower structure is no
longer needed.

The loop sounds good but it tends to rely on extremely high
tech and uncertainty.

Of the 3 I'd feel happiest about investing in a launch LASER
system once they had the "engineering problems" [tm] sorted
out.
