    They were called space hoppers here and great fun they were too.

    Space Elevators have been planned for Years, They need something stronger than steel cable to create it.

    so in other words, you earthlings are building your planet a baseball bat? might come in handy for meteors & asteroids!

    just wonderin do you guys crack your knuckles like us humans?

    Made out of carbon nano fibers the elevator could lift a rocket into space so it doesn’t need all the fuel to break earths gravity.

    Just as long as it doesn’t get stuck between the 3,478th and 3,479th floor.

    And the Muzak is playing ABBA.

    In 1784 Chunosuke Matsuyama sent a message detailing his and 43 shipmates’ shipwrecking in a bottle that washed ashore and was found by a Japanese seaweed collector in 1935, in the village of Hiraturemura, the birthplace of Chunosuke Matsuyama.

    I’m a bit concerned about that space elevator that, you get a little too much weight in there, the elevator cab will stay in place and pull the space station down to earth!

    The idea for a Space Elevator has been bouncing around in SiFi for some time. But now the technology has been catching up to the idea. Once scientists were able to extrude out carbon nanotubes to any length the time had come. Even so actual construction could take decades. They may start in 2020 but it could take 30 years to complete it.

    I wonder if gyros will help to stabilize like they do in boats, planes and such.

    is that the correct scale? the cable would have to be 40 000 miles long.

    They would put the ‘space’ end in geostationary orbit at the equator, I believe the length of the carbon nanotubes would be about 60,000 miles, and it would be flexible enough to withstand wind (rotational speed is irrelevant since it will be in geostationary orbit.) Been a while since I read about it, but it sound promising though.
