Space Elevator - Past, Present, and Future
The Space Elevator is an idea that has been around for over 100 years. Building a ladder to space and climbing to the heavens by using a robot attached to a string, straight up. So what is the status of this project? Where do we stand? What do we need to make this vision a reality?
Michael Laine, President of LiftPort Group, has focused on this project for over a decade. Through good days and bad, the team has persevered despite significant odds. How to do we – as humans – get from where we are (stuck deep in a gravity well) to where we want to be (settlement of the Moon, Mars, and eventually the Stars)? Laine joined as one of the founding pioneers of the original NASA Institute for Advanced Concepts study of the Space Elevator in 2001. Come join us at The STEAM Vent and learn what the Space Elevator is all about!
