Space Elevator time again? Since Arthur C. Clark's "Fountains of Paradise" in 1979, this item has been knocking around as a Blue Sky project. Sounds good, but ... What are your feelings on it and why? Too expensive Not yet possible Too long to complete Toxic underwriting Many an Agency/Institution just trying to get their "snouts" in the trough of a forever Government project? Too much "Abracadabra" in the ways & means Obsolete before completion distraction in current disparaging times Too much dependency on "Moores Law" (efficiency to cost curve improves exponentially)(doubles every two years), to fill in the gaps of yet to exist technology Wont work practically at all, much less than to touted amounts These are the questions ... any thoughts ?
