Space elevator would climb incredible 20-kilometer tower in ambitious Canadian plan
PEMBROKE, ONTARIO, CANADA — A Canadian space company wants to build a space elevator that reaches 20 kilometers high. The company is called Thoth and the concept is called the Thoth X tower. The idea is to build a tower with reinforced inflatable sections. The middle is hollow. An elevator car would encircle the tower until it reaches the top. Thoth estimates the tower would cost $5 billion to construct. As a demonstration project, it would build a precursor tower measuring 1.5 kilometers tall. One feature of the project is the wind farm about three quarters of the way up. The 50 turbines could produce 1 gigawatt of continuous energy. That’s enough to power about 700,000 homes. The main purpose of the tower is to provide a take-off and landing platform for spacecraft. If your aircraft takes off at a 20 kilometer altitude, you can get to space in a single stage without the need for additional fuel stages. Thoth estimates this would save 30% on energy costs. ------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Space Elevator Connecting Earth To Space Station
Astrophysicist and science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson explains on the program NOVA ScienceNow how a Space Elevator could be constructed. You will see that travel from earth to space is possible through a space elevator. This future technology will change our ways by which we go to space. You will also be able to travel to space via this space elevator technology just by buying a ticket to space. In this video explore the potential of carbon nanotubes, whose strength and unique properties make them useful for a variety of applications. See animations of how carbon atoms bond to one another in different ways to make diamond, graphite, buckyballs, and nanotubes, and observe one method that is being researched to form and assemble carbon nanotubes into a long ribbon. Consider how a seemingly impossible application, such as an elevator from the surface of Earth to space, is now theoretically possible given this revolutionary new building material. It costs about $500 million to take the space shuttle out for a spin. But what if there was another way to get to space? And what if that way were as easy and as cheap as riding an elevator? Well, some people think this kind of trip might be possible someday, thanks to something known as the Space Elevator, a 22,000-mile-long cable that could lift people and payloads straight to outer space.

I was wondering if it’s possible to take two giant magnets and use the repulsion force between the two to lift objects into space or can we set up stages along the way up and how that attraction and repulsion force send a type of space elevator up to the moon or anywhere we want to go. Let me know what you think. Bill Nye: Nick. It’s Nick for sure. And it’s magnets to create space elevator. So do I just start talking? We’re ready to go? Nick, Nick, Nick. This is an interesting question. Let me say though starting out we all when you play with magnets and you feel the repulsive force it seems strong. But notice that it acts over a very short distance. Just nominally it goes – it’s not perfect but you can estimate it by saying it goes off as the cube of the distance. So if you have magnets this far apart and you make them twice that far apart they only haven an eighth as much umph. So using a magnet to push things up as high as the atmosphere would take an enormously strong magnet and where would that energy come from? Read Full Transcript Here: http://goo.gl/uAQnVM.

Patent Granted To Space Elevator Brings Science Fiction One Step Closer To Reality
A Canadian company has been granted patents to realize a dream once relegated to science fiction. The ThothX Tower is a proposed space elevator with a seemingly plausible design that will be used to deliver astronauts into the stratosphere in order to make space flight all the more easier. And it will be open to tourists. Move over Babel, there's a new tower in town. Canada-based Thoth Technology was recently granted U.S. and U.K. patents for a space elevator reaching 12.5 miles into the sky. The ThothX Tower is a proposed freestanding piece of futuristic, pneumatically pressurized architecture designed to propel astronauts into the stratosphere—where they can then be launched into space. The tower would also likely be used to generate wind energy, host communications technology and will be open to space tourists. The goal of the tower is to reduce the inefficiency and cost of rocket flights launched from the ground, which space travel presently relies upon. Brendan Quine, the inventor of the tower, told The Guardian, “Part of the limitation on space travel is the cost of getting to space. The tower could change space travel because professional rockets are very energy intensive and not very environmentally friendly.” The proposed space elevator would be 20 times taller than the world’s tallest skyscraper in Dubai.

Wide of LaserMotive trailer STORYLINE A robot powered by a ground-based laser beam climbed a long cable dangling from a helicopter on Wednesday (November 4, 2009) to qualify for prize money in a two (m) million US dollar competition to test the potential reality of the science fiction concept of space elevators. The highly technical contest brought teams from Missouri, Alaska and Seattle to Rogers Dry Lake in the Mojave Desert, most familiar to the public as a space shuttle landing site. The contest requires their machines to climb 2,953 feet (nearly one kilometre) up a cable slung beneath a helicopter hovering nearly a mile high. LaserMotive's vehicle zipped up to the top in just over four minutes and immediately repeated the feat, qualifying for at least a 900-thousand US dollar second-place prize. The device, a square of photo voltaic panels about 2 feet by 2 feet (0.6 meters by 0.6 meters) and topped by a motor structure and thin triangle frame, had failed to respond to the laser three times before it was lowered, inspected and then hoisted back up by the helicopter for the successful tries. LaserMotive's two principals, Jordin Kare and Thomas Nugent, said they were relieved after two years of work. They said their real goal is to develop a business based on the idea of beaming power, not the futuristic idea of accessing space via an elevator climbing a cable. The contest demonstrates that beaming power works, Nugent said. "Anybody who needs power in one place and can't run wires to it, we'd be able to deliver power," Kare said. Earlier out on the lakebed, team member Nick Burrows had pointed out how it grips the cable with modified skateboard wheels and the laser is aimed with an X Box game controller. It had never climbed higher than 80 feet (24 metres) previously, he said. The day's competition began late after hours of testing the cable system, refuelling the helicopter and waits for specific time windows in which the lasers can be fired without harming satellites passing overhead. The Kansas City Space Pirates went first with a machine that initially balked but eventually began climbing.

Elon Musk says a Space Elevator Unrealistic
Elon Musk says a 3000 mile bridge across the Atlantic would be more realistic than an elevator to space. Elon Musk: "I mean I'd think it would be awesome if there was a space elevator, I wouldn't hold my breath. I mean, I don't think it's realistic, but I'd like to be proven wrong. I always think of like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory when I hear the space elevator, you know. Cause people sort of meant it's like an elevator, you press up, and now you're in space. This is like a really - this is extremely complicated. Yeah, I'm not, I don't think it's really realistic to have a space elevator. Let me put it this way: At a point at which we have like a bridge to from L.A. to Tokyo, which I think is a much easier problem, then we, or you know how about across the Atlantic. You know like some sort of 2000 mile log bridge, or 3000 mile long bridge. You know something like that would be made of like carbon nano tubes. I don't think we have a carbon nano tube footbridge so far, let alone some enormous 60 000 mile long space elevator. Anyway, so I think we're - it's not the thing that I think makes sense right now, but if somebody could prove me wrong that would be great."

Japan’s Obayashi to Build Space Elevator by 2050
Japanese company Obayashi has announced that they will have a space elevator constructed by 2050. The elevator will reach 96,000 kilometres into space and will transport people and cargo to a new space station. We look at the development of this futuristic technology, in this Lip News clip with Lissette Padilla and Gabriel Mizrahi. www.thelip.tv Newest Lip News playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGDXj-f6y8g&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGcjJDo6cQBCQprDMQyUQY3r&index=1 BUZZSAW interview clips - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3llKU3krFNg&index=1&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeWhHPas6M9sKUhThquDNOc CRIME TIME clips playlist - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STjWq4lUbg0&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeC9DbpSnIvd2i9BHh2dBvv&index=1 BYOD (Bring Your Own Doc) Highlight Videos- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=beeyZjk_W-0&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeu2DCf6Ouo7hTsA5QB2MAL&index=1 MEDIA MAYHEM short videos playlist - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nV__TORzkCY&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGcz4un-zws5sMlCLk3NNjDP&index=1 https://www.facebook.com/thelip.tv http://www.youtube.com/theliptv
Japanese Firm Plans To Build An Operational Space Elevator By 2050
Obayashi, a big construction company in Japan, announced that they plan to have a working Earth to space station elevator completed by 2050. Spending 7 days confined in an elevator car with 29 other people may not sound like progress worth cheering about, but it just so happens that the lift in question is going to space. Obayashi Corporation, a large Japanese construction company, announced that they plan to have a working Earth to space station hoist completed by 2050. The idea of building such a machine isn’t new and was first suggested in the 19th century by a Russian scientist. So, what’s taken so long? Much of the delay has been due to the lack of a cable material strong enough to do the job. Recent developments in carbon nanotubes have proven promising, and the researchers at Obayashi believe that by 2030 it will be possible to fashion them into long ropes. The current record for cable length achieved with them is 3 centimeters. Advancements are already underway for several other aspects of the elevator as well. Each year universities across Japan tackle current problems and present possible solutions. Given the enormity of the project and its vast technological demands, a spokesperson for the company said a great deal of international support and participation will be needed.
MCV Boron: Carbon Nanotubes and the Space Elevator
With current space launch technology, eighty percent of a rocket's mass is fuel while the actual payload is only six percent. A great deal of monetary and energy resources are devoted to overcoming Earth's gravity. To send up one pound, it costs roughly ten thousand dollars. Eliminating the use of rockets to transport payloads to space could be both cost effective and environmentally friendly. One potential space transportation system to replace rocket technology is a space elevator. A space elevator is a physical connection from the surface of the Earth, at the equator, to a point in geostationary Earth orbit (GEO) approximately 35,786 kilometers above the Earth. The elevator's center of mass is placed at a point in GEO to allow the elevator to remain in phase with the same point on the Earth's surface. The purpose of building a structure of such extraordinary proportions is to provide a significantly cheaper and safer method for transporting both payloads and persons to space. If the space elevator is constructed, it would reduce the cost per pound by a factor of 1000. However, for it to be feasible, it requires cost efficient and high strength-to-weight materials that can withstand the many hazards associated with space. Given that most materials are either too dense or fragile, advances in materials are required to make elevator's construction a true possibility. With the advent of nanotechnology, scientists are claiming that the once fictitious project can now become a reality. Carbon nanotubes provide the tensile strength, lightness, and flexibility to build the tether for the space elevator. In recent studies, it has been shown that they are about 100 times stronger than steel and can stretch up to 14 percent before breaking. However, the challenge still remains of processing these carbon nanotubes to extend to macroscopic sizes. When chained together to form large bundles, the nanotubes lose some of their individual strength. To combat this, researchers are discovering new ways of processing this material to create a stronger structure. Carbon nanotubes have the real potential of bringing the space elevator to life and ushering in a new era of space exploration. Citations: Belluci, S. (2005).

Space Elevators: Coming to you in 2025 - This is REAL Genius
A report from the from the International Academy of Astronautics claims we could feasibly have the first space elevators into Low Earth Orbit as soon as 2025, with more ambitious cables carrying 20 tonnes or so to geostationary orbit from 2035. The system could lift as much as a space shuttle every two days for a fraction of the cost, making missions to the moon and Mars, and extraterrestrial mining, more realistic.

Five strangest ways to get into space (that we've tried) - This is Genius
Rockets are rubbish. Fortunately, we know this and have been trying to find better ways of getting into space for nearly as long as we've actually been going to space. From Skylon to Project Orion to Alcubierre drives and space elevators, here's our list of the five most bizarre ways we've tried - or are trying - to get spacecraft into orbit.
