    The costs are huge. However, is it possible not having a huge amount of money?

    You might check out the mass driver or electromagnetic catapult on Wiki. These things have been in some sci-fi books too.

    Thanks. Yep, these things (vertical railgun / cosmic elevator) are possible to be built yet the costs of building one are rather huge.
