I don't think Terrorists would attempt to destroy the elevator if it were built. They seek political power not world destruction. (Unless they seek political power for world destruction) If they did seek to destroy it, it would be incredibly difficult because it would most likely end up being one of the most heavily guarded places on Earth.

you can power the climber using solar panels on the space station and you can send the energy to the elevator with a high power laser.

better buld rocket than elevator not even diamond can work so it must be something cheaper than a rocket

it's a round about way of getting things into space we should question why after so long humanity is still stuck on fossil fuels moving away from that finding something more efficient and cheaper is the way forward. thinking of tethered things is conventional theory...maybe that's the issue at hand. of course there is fuel lobbyist and things like that at hand that will always seek to stem the flow of technological progress.

But the space station holding the elevator should naturally be orbiting around the earth . So tje elevator cant be in a stable position . Therefore its not possible

NASA'S [retired] space shuttle costed over $57,000 to put a kilogram of payload to leo. Elon's bfr (which will launch in just 2 years!) costs only $47 to put that same amount! we are less than a decade away from a huge space revolution.

one thing that you could do to prevent damage from the tether if it were to break at the counter weight, is you could quickly reel in the counterweight, but i'm not a rocket scientist so I don't really know if it were to work.

It would be humanity's worst mistake to do that elevator. Slowing down or maybe stopping earth's rotation. That would be catastrophic

This would slow down the spin of the earth. How would that affect us?

The base of the tether would have to be a very tall skyscraper wrapping around it to protect from the elements.

If we would not be occupied with being offended at other people assuming our genders, or trying to fit our and other lives around dogmatic religions, then we would have already figured out the hows of space elevators long ago.

It's cool to think that once we have a reliable way to get resources into space, we can start making things that look like they are from star wars since we can make them in space.

Just for people who think an elevator to the moon could work elevator to the moon won't work: The moon and the Earth have differnt rotation cycles and they rotate different ways, thus snapping the elevator to the moon.

Jerremy Hughes (1 месяц назад)
Guys, bear in mind that the tether would probably be several metres in diameter and made of some of the toughest materials known to Ningen (japanese word for our species that conveniently doesn't have a gender bias attached) kind .This is to say that if it snapped somewhere near the top, it would end up carving a kilometers wide trough almost all the way around earth's equator, killing millions as it fell at speeds faster than the speed of sound at its end :P
