The Official Space Elevator Webpage
Real Ultimate Power
Hi, this site is all about space elevators, REAL SPACE ELEVATORS. This site is awesome. My name is Tom and I can't stop thinking about space elevators. These things are cool; and by cool, I mean totally sweet.
1. Space elevators are megastructures.
2. Space elevators connect the Earth's surface to geosynchronous orbit ALL the time.
3. The purpose of the Space Elevator is to lift payloads into space.
Materials and gear:
Carbon Nanotubes Delicate balance of orbital masses and velocities
Space elevators can lift anything they want! Space elevators launch paylods ALL the time and don't even think twice about it. These things are so crazy and awesome that they span the distance from sea-level to geosynchronous orbit ALL the time. I head that there was this space elevator which was operating at a planet. And when some some alien race dropped a rock from orbit the elevator evacuated the whole planet's population. My friend Arthur said that he saw a space elevator totally transform a world's economy just because the world decided to mine the asteroids.
And that's what I call REAL Ultimate Power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you don't believe that space elevators have REAL Ultimate Power you better get a life right now or they will render your entire space industry obsolete!!! It's an easy choice, if you ask me.
Space elevators are sooooooooooo sweet that I want to crap my pants. I can't believe it sometimes, but I feel it inside my heart. These things are totally awesome and that's a fact. Space elevators are tall, massive, cool, strong, efficient, and sweet. I can't wait to start CDT next year. I love space elevators with all of my body (including my pee pee).
Q and A:.
Q:Why is everyone so obsessed about space elevators?
A:Space elevators are the ultimate paradox. On the one hand they are massive and rigid, but on the other hand, space elevators are very slender and precisely balanced.
Q: I heard that space elevators are always collapsing or falling down. What's their problem?
A: Whoever told you that is a total liar. Just like other megastructures, space elevators can collapse OR totally operate fully.
Q:What do space elevators do when they're not hauling cargo or people?
A: Most of their free time is spent in maintenance, but sometimes they are used for cislunar astrophysics studies (Ask Arthur if you don't believe me.)
This is a picture of my best friend Arthur showing off.
He's a lot older than me and invented the communications satellite,
which is bragable.
