Back to GR and instantaneous versus limited speed interactions, I am far out of my depth. Does the speed of gravity fit into the argument? The speed of gravity is apparently ~ equal to the speed of light. This superficially causes all sorts of problems with orbital mechanics, but there are considerations that apparently resolves the conflict.

I am looking for something that helps us get to orbit faster, cheaper and more reliably. Once you can do that, going anywhere else becomes much easier. But for some reason that seems to be more elusive than in space propulsion :(
