Where does all Hi-Tech goes to when it becomes Old-Tech?

I've seen these pics today and it really saddened me.
While progress for new products is incessant, new solutions to our techno garbage is not.

Yes, but the air is constantly pumped back in. So you'd have to be at a odd angle for awhile to be in danger.
Remember the thing is very heavy at the base, so it should be quite hard to tilt, let alone stay tilted.

Polaris there never was a successful single stage to orbit vehicle.

Usually rockets (including the space shuttle) have different stages to account for different atmosphere composition on varying heights. Usually when one stage has used it's fuel it is dumped and either burns up in the atmosphere or has to be retrieved later on.

The skylon will not drop any of it's parts, and will just speed off a runway and off into space - thanks to it's apparently revolutionary engine design.

Neat. No more $ waste on fuel and discardable parts.

Indeed.
While I dont think its a complete solution - to lower costs further for getting building materials into orbit we really should use cannons - its probably the cheapest we can do for humans.

Well, cheapest short of a full or halfway space elevator.
