and then

Imagine having the ability to totally heal and even rejuvenate the human body.  Imagine the process being simple enough to not be prohibitively expensive.  Imagine the overpopulation crisis that would follow and the decisions we'd have to make as a species to answer that crisis.  Maybe it would be the catalyst to colonizing other planets?

We should have started colonizing other planets decades ago.  I personally favor getting rid of chemical rockets in favor of using them solely for manoeuver, and relying on maglev for launching, as it only relies on electricity, which is very renewable.

How does the physics work on that?  Can such a system generate enough velocity to escape gravity?

The answer is, yes, easily.  All you need to do to hit escape velocity is Mach 19, and magnetics can do far more than that.  The only problem is that the velocity needs to be staggered so as not to kill the passengers, but that is hardly an insurmountable challenge from an engineering perspective.

Correction, Mach 17.
