    Currently the problem is to get the initial thread up at speed.
    Physics sets the requirement, but engineering has to deal with various other problems. So it will take probably a decade before we got a working technology. That is if we pursuit it aggressively.

    lol!

    I loved that part in the second article that talked of 'relieving' tourists of their money with the Tokyo Sky Tower.True,true,such projects are really just a means of taking people's money one way or another.
    Though it be cool if they really could build a Space Elevator. alien

    That's why I like that article. After all you got to get the money back.
    Still it's overall cost is probably cheaper in the first decades compared to the asteroid mining without it.

    Have you seen Armitage III Dual Matrix?
    The climatic fight takes place on a space elevator.Though I doubt we will have to worry about evil cyborgs trying to hack us to death if a real space elevator is ever made. lol!

    I haven't watched the new ones yet.
    I bet the screams do resound all the way down to earth. Evil or Very Mad
    So much for no sound in space. Laughing

    I watched it subbed.In the dub they have the guy who did Jar Jar play the underground
    doctor that fixes Armitage up.
    One of the best Neelix episodes on Voyager was the episode he and Tuvok were stuck on that alien oribital elevator and Neelix had to use his knowledge gleaned from working on models to get it going when it got stuck.
    Then there was the whole thing about spies,etc.
