I thought the definition of space was fairly well agreed on. Which means this task should be worth a bit more than 45 points -- it's only been done by two (or three*) non-governmental organizations, and once (or never*) by amateurs.

I guess you could pay someone to send it up for you, but where's the fun in that? :) (Also, I recommend caution before sending Interorbital any money: their track record on orbital launches could be politely described as nonexistant.)

* In chronological order: the amateur CSXT space shot was likely successful, but not independently confirmed, and there are significant uncertainties. This was followed by Scaled Composites' SpaceShipOne, and then SpaceX's Falcon I and Falcon 9 launches.

Why stop at one? Combining all five might be tough, but four of them at once shouldn't be too hard for a 5-point task.

Wait, when did we start playing upside down bids as forcing?

Well, I don't know about your kitchen, but my oven is more suited to light saber practice drones than it is to Death Stars.

In a fit of originality, this is called Common Meter.

In modern times, it has been recognized as yet another way to reduce the space complexity of songs.
