That principle is also used in weaponry. The Navy is developing a rail gun that can accelerate a projectile to Mach 7 velocity in milliseconds, with a range of over 100 miles. No explosive propellant can match that incredible performance.

That would be useful on the moon. It would exceed escape velosity on the moon and would be a way to launch things from the moon without using a chemical reaction.
