Stupid. They should focus on building a massive space station where they can have a number of ships docked permanently, a decent sized population, restaurants, hotels, etc. A city in space.

The number of problems with some absurdly tall elevator is just ridiculous.

$20 billion for a functioning elevator, provided we had a cable material?

Hell, we spent a hundred billion throwing the ISS up there the old fashioned way.

correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the earth travelling at like 300+km/h? Wouldn't that break the elevator line in half? looks kinda frail, and I agree, space debris would be a major factor too,

wouldn't having a satellite thing attached to a tether, which is attached to the ground cause the satellite to come crashing down to earth? Think about it, the satellite is weightless in space, anything that attaches to the tether, or even the weight of the tether itself, should be heavy enough to just pull it down.

An elevator isn't just a tether you know. There's a frame around it too.

A space elevator is just a tether, actually.

Take a rock on the end of a string and spin it around over your head. The rock is the counterweight at the end, and the string is the tether. The counterweight is positioned past geosynchronous orbit, meaning the centrifugal force of the Earth's rotation will throw it outwards, keeping the cable taut. The station would be at geosynchronous orbit, where it's weightless and where it would remain in orbit if the tether were to break.

An added bonus is, if you were to go out to where the counterweight is and let go, you'd be flung off on an interplanetary trajectory, meaning you get the first leg of a Mars trip or something for free.

we dont need new ways to get to the moon we need moon bases so i can live there!!! god damm that would be awesome

No. Satellites, regardless of mass, are kept in orbit by a constant centripetal force (their weight due to gravity) towards the Earth's surface, coupled with continual accellerations (changes in direction) of its tangental velocity. They are not weightless. They are in fact in a constant state of freefall, but their velocity at any time is such that the surface of the Earth curves away from the object as it falls. This is uniform circular motion.

Kepler's Law Of Periods is (r^3)/(T^2) = GM/4pi, where r is the radius of orbit, T is the orbital period and M is the mass of the planet with G a constant. Thus, the radius and period of an orbit is independant of the mass of the orbiting object. This means any extra weight on the satellite caused by the tether is inconsequential as long as the satellite maintains appropriate orbital velocity.

tl;dr: it's possible.

Admit it, you don't know the difference of centripetal and centrifugal force.

Do you understand the concept and how they are getting it to work?
Or hell, what materials they want to use?

Read up man, if this thing works, we could send shit to outer space incredibly cheaply (in comparison to how much it costs now).

Centrifugal force is ficticious. Clearly you need a bit of education in the area as well

Why do we NEED to bugger around with space? I just don't see the point right now. Maybe in 50 years or something, but right now we have enough problems to deal with on Earth.
