Up, up and awaaay!

Again the space elevator story.

Things haven’t changed much since the last time this issue was mentioned, but it seems the subject is far from being dropped.

Now even more “experts” are meeting and beginning to tackle the issues, one by one.

It seems we only need to solve a lot of major technical issues to get to the political issues and then the economic issues (or is it the other way around?).

Still, there is no doubt that the whole space elevator concept is cool and if the technical issues are indeed solved it could prove to be very interesting, economically speaking.

Yes, I know, political issues will most likely make the whole project flounder. But we can still dream, right?
