Just another off the wall addition to the cannon application.

Perhaps some future technology could surround a cryogenically stored human
with a dewar of liquid hydrogen of sufficient quantity and sheath the
projectile with material capable of surviving exit of the atmosphere.

If one wanted a low cost to transport people to mars perhaps that combined
with mars orbital capture and reanimation night be a slightly wacky but very
cheap way to do this.   It might be asking too much of technology to shoot
the projectile so accurately that a similar reverse cannon capture device on
mars surface could make the catch on the martian surface.

This is a really whacked out idea in today's world.

As an engineering problem perhaps someone might take it as a challenge and
perhaps add it to the possibilities for low cost space travel????
