This kind of space elevator. Which is made from carbon nano tubes composite ribbon. Will be 100.000 km high into space. The cost for this kind of adventure for everyone. Who wants to be part of that superb excursion. Will be from $220 to $880 per kilogram. With this revolutionary invention the scientists moving. Out the science fiction into reality.
The nano tubes are 100 times stronger than steel and more flexible than plastic. That is coming from their unique structure. This space elevator will be the new modern World wonder. And it will be one of the tallest buildings ever build. The components of this space elevator are: robotic lifter, power beaming system and anchor station.
The lifter will be powered by laser beam. With energy of 2.4 megawatts to photo voltaic cells made of Gallium Arsenide. And will be attached to the robotic lifter. Which will be the same time and energy converter. And will convert the energy into electricity to be used by the electric motors.
This project for space elevator is 30 percent cheaper than the fuel required by conventional rocket. Astronauts will be send to the space with 20 km electrical elevator. From the top of that elevator the space planes will launch and returning to the top of the tower for fueling and reflight. And this type of fueling with the fuel will decrease launch costs. This technology is also working on a few missions like Northern Light lander concept on Mars and an Extrasolar Spectroscopy of Planets. That missions will probe for basic elements for life in the atmospheres of alien Planets.
The scientists believe that this project will have substantial role in the near future and it will be great opportunity to be a tourist attraction. Everybody can be in the space and see the Earth and the Moon from the Space.
There are 300 selected locations for building of this amazing space elevator project.
