A newly proposed sort of area elevator might really work. ⁠

Researchers from Columbia College and Cambridge College printed a brand new doc which proposes the creation of “the Spaceline” which might hyperlink the Earth and the Moon. It might drastically reduce the price of area journey. ⁠

The Spaceline could be tethered to the floor of the Moon and dangle down into geostationary orbit across the Earth like a plumb bob, ready for astronauts to latch on and experience into the cosmos. It might even be constructed from supplies that exist at the moment, placing the cosmos just about inside attain of our fingertips. Faucet the hyperlink in our bio to learn extra on Futurism.com

  • This is literally the worst idea. The moon moves over 30,000 miles from its closest to furthest points. To drop an elevator from the moon would mean picking the closest(?) and building towards that. Essentially a giant bat to whack satellites out of the sky – so we’d have to escape Earths’ gravity on our own anyways and then what: climb into the elevator and generate friction and deceleration on our journey to the moon instead of using the greatest benefit of space travel: traveling through space. But where this idea could actually be used is for the moon itself. Since there aren’t satellites, and its gravity well is much smaller, a moon elevator as a docking station would be an effective way to mitigate fuel loss in entry & takeoff there. I just wish scientists would stop trying to push absurdities that aren’t realistic or possible en lieu of more practical and possible ideas.

  • I know it is working in one of my dreams. It is beyond fast, flows smoothly by decreased gravity🎢 It’s the best transportation machine.

  • I have so many questions! The rotation of the earth, and most importantly : WHAT BUSINESS ARE YOU ATTENDING ON THE MOON?

  • We’ve heard this before… Seems like potential graphene could play a key role in this elevator. But if you want to see graphene in today’s world, check our all around Graphene-X jacket 👊

  • This is definitely not newly purposed. I’ve been reading about this since 5th grade. Coming out from near S. America bc of the equator and the mining for the materials coming from outside the earth as to perserve out finite sources..

  • So the Earth spins and im (correct me if I’m wrong) sure even tho the Sade side of the Moon is facing the Earth , it’s not same side of earth facing the moon . Maybe a satellite be a better option … Or just for thought make a ring around the Earth with your elevators to it
